Requirements for all students
Enrolment at VSV is subject to Department of Education guidelines and is only available to Victorian residents.
A resident is a person with a permanent, residential address in Victoria. The onus is on the enrolling student’s family to provide proof of their residency. Victorian residents temporarily travelling overseas or interstate are eligible to apply.
VSV does not generally accept students on Temporary Visas. Please contact our Enrolment Office if you believe you may be eligible.
Minimum enrolment period
Enrolment is available to all eligible Victorian residents who are unable to access regular schooling for a minimum of two consecutive school terms or six consecutive months within a single school year.
Proof of age
Students must be between the minimum age of 4 years and 9 months and under the age of 21 years as of 1 January 2024 to enrol at VSV. Students over the age of 17 may only enrol at VSV if an exception to the maximum age requirement applies or if an exemption from that requirement has been granted to them. Please see Enrolment: School age requirements and age exemptions | education.vic.gov.au for further details. VSV will seek an exemption from the maximum age requirement on behalf of eligible Direct Enrolments, who require an exemption but meet all other relevant enrolment criteria. School-based students should coordinate age exemption with their school.
All students must submit their proof of age with their enrolment application. This can include a copy of a birth certificate, passport, or a driver’s licence. In some circumstances, certified copies may be requested.
