Check your prerequisites

Some subjects may have prerequisites. This means that they have a ‘prior study’ condition attached to them.

If you have completed your Year 12 studies in a state other than Victoria you will usually have your prerequisite subjects automatically approved.

  • If you have been admitted to a course based on secondary studies completed under an International Baccalaureate (IB), you will have your prerequisites automatically approved for Level 1 Languages, Maths and Science subjects only.
  • If you have been admitted to a course on the basis of a pathway other than VCE (e.g. Trinity Foundation Studies, GCE A Levels), your prerequisites will not be automatically recognised by the University’s enrolment system. You will be prevented from enrolling into subjects until you have your prerequisites approved. To do this, read our helpful FAQ on non-VCE prerequisites.

What is a Study Plan?

Your Study Plan is the online tool that structures your course. Through your Study Plan you can manage your enrolment by planning, enrolling and changing subjects.
