Study your VCE in a mature and flexible environment that allows you to experience the services available to all tertiary students.
RMIT’s VCE program gives you the opportunity to complete your VCE in the heart of Melbourne, without any compulsory extra-curricular activities, allowing you to focus on your studies.
Our alternative pathway delivers Year 11 (units 1 and 2) and Year 12 (units 3 and 4) in a mature and supportive environment.
You are able to select courses according to Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) requirements and complete 16 units, including four Year 12 sequences.
What you will gain through this program
Whether you're a young person or someone a little older wanting to complete your high school education, RMIT's VCE provides you the opportunity to complete your education in an environment where you can discover your interests and learn where your skills lie.
Why study your VCE at RMIT?
You’ll be taught by experienced VCE teachers who will comprehensively prepare you for next step, whether that’s tertiary study or employment.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
RMIT offers a variety of learning and teaching approaches, including lectures, seminars, studios, workshops, presentations and group discussions.
Ongoing assessment throughout the semester is designed to check your comprehension of course content and contributes to your ATAR. These assessments are the same as all VCE students experience and may include essays, examinations and presentations.
As you move through this program and consider what's next after completing your VCE, you'll have the opportunity to see a youth pathways coordinator, who may provide help with:
- career guidance and pathway planning
- information on courses, traineeships, apprenticeships and training options
- ongoing assistance applying for courses
- support with skills for finding employment, including résumés and letters of application
- referral to health, housing, counselling or financial support services.
All programs are delivered in English.
You will have access to online resources through the myRMIT student portal.
RMIT University is committed to providing you with an education that strongly links formal learning with professional or vocational practice.
VCE is a senior secondary certificate recognised within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF) and internationally. Completing the VCE will expand your options for the future. You can apply through VTAC for university and VOCATIONAL EDUCATION programs, search for employment or qualify for promotion at work.
RMIT VCE students are part of the Schools Network Access Program (SNAP). Selected Year 12 students applying for RMIT degree and VOCATIONAL EDUCATION courses may be eligible for ’SNAP’ entry to these courses, regardless of their ATAR score.
Tertiary institutions and employers frequently require specific courses to be included in a Year 12 program, as prerequisites to entry or employment. You are advised to consult tertiary program information and the Victorian Tertiary Admission Centre (VTAC) before choosing VCE courses. You can also seek advice from the RMIT VCE Office and RMIT Student Services group.
Professional recognition and accreditation
The VCE Year 12 is recognised Australia-wide and internationally as a tertiary entrance qualification. VCE Year 11 does not qualify you for tertiary entrance.
