Victoria University VU Guaranteed 2021 applications now openVictoria University is excited to announce that applications for VU Guaranteed 2021 are now open. Last year we saw over 2,500 students apply to secure a place at VU or VU Polytechnic prior to the completion of Year 12 exams.
Your feedback is integral to making sure your students get the most out of their VUG experience. This year we have implemented some changes to ensure a smoother process for VUG students applying for TAFE courses. If a VUG student does not receive an offer for their preferred TAFE course, they will receive an alternative offer for a course in the same area if one is available and they meet the entry requirements. If no suitable alternative is available, they will receive an alternative offer for a foundational course. Your students will have the option to accept or reject these alternative offers without submitting a new course application.
In addition to receiving a guaranteed place at VU or VU Polytechnic, VUG students receive:
Visit the website to find out more and to apply.
- automatic consideration for one of two $2000 Ignite scholarships for Year 12s at your school (domestic and permanent residents only)
- automatic consideration for a $500 Ignite study grant for one Year 11 at your school (domestic and permanent residents only)
- 5 bonus aggregate ATAR points for courses that consider ATAR as part of the selection process (excludes Bachelor of Education P-12)

- special VIP opportunities at VU events.
Please note: a VU Guaranteed application is not a course application, and students will still need to add any higher education courses to their VTAC preference list or apply directly to VU Polytechnic for TAFE courses. Any Year 11 students who successfully applied for VU Guaranteed in 2020 do not need to reapply for the program, although they will need to update their application to be eligible for the Ignite scholarship.
