Whether you want to upskill, reskill or make a career change, we have qualifications to meet your goal.
Take your VCE at VU
The Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) is a senior secondary school qualification which can prepare you for the workforce or study at an undergraduate or TAFE level. VCE at VU is offered through our TAFE division, Victoria Polytechnic. It is the same VCE course offered in secondary schools, but is specifically tailored for adults returning to study.
Short courses, certificates & diplomas
If you don’t have the time to commit to a full degree, or simply want to upskill or reskill in a particular field, you will find lots of course options at Victoria Polytechnic.
Our TAFE division offers courses at all levels of study, from trade pre-apprenticeships through to graduate certificates in management and more.

Credit for your skills & past study
We recognise the valuable skills and life experience that you may already have when you return to study. We can credit academic, professional or life skills that are determined to be equivalent to the skills that would be covered in specific units in the course you plan to take. This means you may be able to complete your course in a shorter time.
