Applicants with vocational education and training (VET) study

If you have previous Vocational Education and Training, we can use your results as a basis of admission to an undergraduate course. We take into consideration whether you completed the course and if your results were graded.

Even if it’s been a while since you were in TAFE or other VE studies (i.e. not within the past seven years), you will be considered for entry.  For certain courses, if your VET study was ungraded (only pass/fail) you may have to sit for the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT).

You’ll receive an offer if your study is assessed as meeting the admission requirements for your preferred Swinburne course. If you don’t meet requirements, you will be given an alternate course offer or pathway option.

Where course entry requirements include prerequisite subjects, you must present evidence of having successfully acquired the required knowledge and skills through current or previous studies.  Individual course admission criteria will identify where that prerequisite study needs to have been undertaken within a certain time period.

You can also apply for academic credit on the basis of your VET results.
