What is the VCE Summer School?
VCE Summer School (VCESS) is a two-week tutoring program that takes place in January and aims to help VCE students from a range of backgrounds gain a head start on their final years of secondary education. The program has a particular focus on creating a healthy study-life balance, and providing tutoring on the widest range of subjects. In fact, in previous years we have had tutors for each and every VCE subject students have taken, no matter how small the subject may be.
How can I stay updated on when applications are opening?
If you are a high school student wanting information on applying for the Program when it becomes available, please join our student expression of interest list.
When and where will the 2021 Program take place?
VCESS is currently planned to take place from January 11th – 22nd. The program will run online. The program runs Monday to Friday in each week.
What if I’m a rural or regional-based student?
For students who don’t live in Melbourne, we offer our Rural and Regional Program, which provides additional activities, workshops and supports for students from rural and regional backgrounds.
The program runs alongside the VCE Summer School, meaning you will be attending classes and workshops run by the VCE Summer School, as well as being a part of a group of students participate in additional activities specifically designed to meet the needs of students from rural and regional backgrounds.
The program is led by university students many of whom come from rural and regional areas, who will share their experience and insights into VCE and coming to University.
The entire two-week program costs $50, which includes all VCE classes, subject materials, activities, workshops and focus tutoring.
