New La Trobe university pathway for Year 11 students webinar - Monday 26 October 4-5pm
Achieve Plus is our new pathway to La Trobe University. But it might sound familiar. You may remember VCE Plus? Well, we’ve given it a fresh lick of paint during the lockdown.
Here’s what you need to know about Achieve Plus:
Are your students ready to challenge themselves and get a head start to university?
- Year 12 VCE students can complete two first-year university subjects and have them recognised as part of their VCE.
- It’s 100% online and free!
- Achieve Plus contributes to the student’s ATAR (counting as their 5th and 6th subjects).
- Their results across the two uni subjects give them a boost to their ATAR or a La Trobe entrance score, as well as an early conditional offer (if completed successfully). We’ll take their La Trobe entrance score instead of an ATAR if it’s higher – giving them more chances to succeed.
They’ll gain firsthand experience at uni life, try out the subjects that interest them and all while, scoring credit towards eligible La Trobe degrees.
Find out more about Achieve Plus, including subjects on offer, eligible courses, who is eligible and how to apply. Or hear all about it at our Achieve Plus webinar on Monday 26 October.
