How to Apply: Australian Applicants

There are two methods of applying to Deakin College for Australian applicants:

  1. Apply direct
  2. Apply through VTAC

Apply to Deakin College Directly

You can apply directly to Deakin College if:

  • You’re applying for a Deakin College course that begins in June or October, OR;
  • You are applying for a Deakin College course that starts in March:
    • you are not currently studying a standard Australian Year 12 curriculum and you do not plan to apply to more than one institution or for more than one course at Deakin College; OR;
    • the VTAC rounds have closed for the March intake.

Apply to Deakin College through VTAC

For the March intake only, Australian students should apply through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC). Online VTAC applications open in August for students starting in the following year.

Are You Eligible to Apply Through VTAC?

You can apply through VTAC if you are:

  • an Australian citizen
  • an Australian permanent resident
  • a New Zealand citizen
  • a temporary resident currently studying an Australian Year 12* or International Baccalaureate in Australia or New Zealand.
