If you're a year 12 student looking to commence your studies in the creative industries at JMC Academy's Melbourne campus in a February intake - you'll need to lodge an application with VTAC.
The Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) is the central office that administers the application and offer process for places in tertiary courses at university, TAFE and independent tertiary colleges in Victoria (and a few outside Victoria). VTAC receives and forwards application information and supporting documentation to the course selection authorities at institutions. After selection decisions have been made by the course authorities at institutions, VTAC sends offer letters to successful applicants on the institutions’ behalf.
If you are a year 12 student looking to commence your studies with us in a February intake, you will
need to lodge an application with VTAC. The VTAC application system allows you to apply for courses
at multiple universities within one application.
If you are not a year 12 student or are looking to apply for a June or September intake,
you may still apply directly through JMC here. You can find our entry requirements here.
Regardless of if you are a year 12 student or not, you can register for our upcoming Melbourne Open Day on Saturday the 24th of August to check out our facilities and see if JMC is the right place for you.
Submit your application to VTAC by the close date. Remember to also advise your Careers Counsellor of your preference.
Add this as your first preference on your VTAC form and aim for your ultimate course! List courses in the order you want to study them, not the order in which you think you will get in.
You may be called in for an interview during this time. This will ensure that once VTAC offers are released we will be able to speed up the enrolment process for you and prioritise your application. Music Performance applicants will also need to complete an audition during this time.
If your ATAR is higher than your first preference course, remember to keep your options aligned with the course that best matches your passion and interests. If you like a course you've chosen, chances are you
will excel in it.
Remember, due to the creative nature of each of our eight courses, JMC Academy has removed all ATAR limitations for enrolment into our courses. Instead, all you will need to do is book a time to come in for a chat with our student admissions team to talk about your interests and determine if JMC is the best fit for you.
There are a number of offer rounds where you will be made different offers based on your preferences, as well as how well you met other course requirements.
Once you receive your offer remember to accept your place at JMC Academy
