Welcome to VTAC CourseLink

Introduction

VTAC CourseLink is an initiative of the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). It is an interactive web-based program aimed to assist Careers Teachers, Counsellors, students (years 10-12) and their parents investigate course options based on a range of criteria including interests, studies undertaken and results.

The program has two distinct components:

  • Student access available free of charge to anyone with Internet access.

Teacher Access is the password-protected component through which VTAC provides schools with information such as:

  • Courses listed on the original preferences (30 September 2009)
  • The ENTER
  • Courses listed at change of preference
  • The offer list (1st, 2nd and 3rd rounds)
  • VTAC CourseLink allows teachers to record accurate statistical data on their students participating in the VTAC application and selection process.
    • The Student Access program provides students with the opportunity to investigate course options based on a range of search functions that include region, institutions, interest areas, VCE studies (undertaken at Units 3/4 level), study scores and results.
