How it works

Who is eligible for VCE Plus?

To enrol in VCE Plus you will need to be studying at a Victorian school and;

  • to have enrolled in at least four VCE Unit 3/4 subjects (one being English, EAL or English Language)
  • to be eligible to be awarded VCE in 2017
  • to have at least one VCE Unit 3/4 enrolment during the year you undertake VCE Plus
  • achieved excellent results in Year 10 or 11.

How are the classes delivered?

VCE Plus offers face-to-face delivery or a blend of face-to-face and online. While studying, you'll be able to use our Library as well as our Learning Management System (LMS) and Echo to listen to lectures.

Class attendance

VCE Plus students are required to attend all classes. You'll be given priority enrolment to accommodate your availability. Please contact us at vceplus@latrobe.edu.au if you have any queries.

How much does it cost?

The fees for the VCE Plus program are much lower than the normal charges for first year university students, and so substantial savings on university HECs fees will be made should you choose to continue your education with La Trobe. A limited number of fee exempt places are available.

Definitions – Extension and Advanced Standing

An Extension Study is defined as;

  • equivalent in content and assessment in every respect to one or more current first-year studies and constituting 20-25 per cent of a full-time first-year course and does not duplicate a VCE study
  • being of a level for a high achieving student and therefore a clear extension on the identified VCE Year 12 study, offering depth and breadth and commensurate in workload with an additional VCE study
  • being of a level which will normally allow the student, on successful completion, to proceed to second year study at the higher education institution in that discipline as part of a Bachelor Degree program.

An Advanced Standing Study is defined as:

  • equivalent in content and assessment in every respect to one or more current first-year studies and constituting 20-25 per cent of a full-time first-year course
  • not available in any VCE studies
  • providing students with a defined pathway into a tertiary program of study
  • being of a level which will normally allow the student, on successful completion, to proceed to second year study at the higher education institution in that discipline as part of a Bachelor Degree program.
