How to apply for VET Delivered to Secondary Students
Essentially, we’re in partnership with you and your school. You speak to your school and they coordinate your application with Swinburne. Seek out your school’s VET or careers coordinator for course recommendations and discuss your options. Then, when you’ve decided on a VETDSS course that fits, your school will forward your application directly to us.
To be eligible for consideration for a VETDSS program you must be currently enrolled in Year 10, 11 or 12.
You’ll receive notification from your school about the outcome of your application. Successful? More information about enrolment will follow.
If there is greater demand than course places available, you’ll be placed on a waiting list. So, take note of our key application dates to allow time for your school-endorsed application to get to us.
Please refer to Swinburne's policies and regulations for student rights and responsibilities while on campus.
The costs associated with Swinburne VETDSS programs is invoiced directly to schools. For more information on course costs, it’s best to contact your school’s VET or careers coordinator.
