Change of Preference and Course Application Advice from Indigenous academic and support staff
The annual Change of Preference Hotline is run for Indigenous students seeking advice about university entrance. It is a 24 hour service that runs from ATAR release until the beginning of Semester 1. The line is staffed by Indigenous academics and support staff who can help you with:
- The VTAC application process
- Submitting preferences for courses
- Course advice planning
- Student Supports in each University
- Other services that are available
- Pathways into the course you want
We believe that each university has something to offer – the key is finding the best fit for you!
