Information on VTAC

Understanding VTAC course codes

The 10 digit VTAC course code is used in your VTAC online application. These codes tell VTAC what course type, campus and fee structure you are applying for.

There are four types of course codes:

  • Commonwealth supported places
  • Vocational Education and Training (VET) government-funded places
  • Domestic fee places
  • International fee places

Special considerations

Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS)

The Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) is offered through VTAC for students who have experienced educational disadvantage. SEAS allows VTAC selection officers to grant extra consideration for course entry by taking into account any short or long-term disadvantage.

Swinburne participates in all categories of SEAS:

Location adjustment

Swinburne offers a location adjustment for applicants from outer regional and remote communities. These applicants will automatically receive location adjustment factors to their ATAR score if they:

  • apply for a course for which assessment is based on ATAR
  • are currently studying Year 12, or Year 12 is their highest level of study.

Swinburne will automatically apply location adjustment factors to an applicant's aggregate score based on location. Applicants are not required to apply for this consideration.
