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.

What is 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 or colleges within one application.

If you are not a year 12 student or are looking to apply for a June or September intake, you may apply directly through JMC here. You can find our entry requirements here.
