Application information

  1. Check if you’re eligible.
  2. Fill out the application form. You can nominate up to three courses. Select your course preferences carefully – once an application has been submitted, it can’t be changed until Second Chance Aspire during Change of Preference.*
  3. Your Aspire offer is available in first round offers only. Preference your Aspire course accordingly:
    • Year 12s: To secure your Aspire place, ensure the course you applied for with Aspire is listed among your preferences in VTAC/UAC. The offer you receive from VTAC/UAC will be for the course listed highest on your preference list, assuming you've met all the admission criteria. Remember, your Aspire offer is only available in the first round of offers.
    • Non-Year 12s: You’re still required to submit an application through VTAC/UAC in addition to your Aspire application. Make sure the course you apply for in Aspire is the same as in your VTAC/UAC application.
  4. Submit your application by 17 September 2021.

*Available only to students who don't meet the Aspire ATAR
