Swinburne Secondary Programs update

Swinburne Secondary Programs (SSP) has closed all VCE applications for 2022 and we will no longer be delivering an academic VCE program from 2023 onwards.

Our VCAL and VCE courses are designed for current secondary school students, and will give you a range of options and the ability to focus on practical learning.

VCAL courses (Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning) provide vocational learning with an emphasis on five key areas: literacy, numeracy, work-related skills, personal development, and industry skills. 

Swinburne’s VCE Connect provides you with a VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education) qualification within a supportive learning environment, and with all the benefits and facilities of studying at a university.

If you’re a current Year 12 student and keen to gain entry to a Swinburne degree or UniLink program without an ATAR, check out our Early Entry Program.

The Swinburne Advantage

An undergraduate degree must be about more than just knowledge – it’s also job readiness, professional experience and access to further opportunities. 

We partner with leading Australian and global organisations to offer students authentic workplace experiences. Our degrees can include placements, internships, industry-linked projects, study tours and more. This is your chance to work on real-life projects, solve day-to-day challenges in your field and gain the professional skills that put knowledge into practice. You’ll build invaluable skills and confidence, knowing you have what it takes to land a job by graduation or even before.
