How to apply for a training course

​​You can apply for most courses directly with the training provider or TAFE.

Visit the Victorian Skills Gateway to search for courses. Each course will be listed with the contact details of the provider.

If you're a VCE or VCAL student 

If you're a VCE student (in year 12) or completing your VCAL, you usually apply through the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre.

Visit the VTAC website for more information about applying, entry requirements, courses, and institutions.

Closing dates

Application closing dates depend on the training provider. You should send your application before the deadline to secure a place.

Some courses have mid-year intakes, and applications for these are made from March to June. Some courses have intakes all year round.
