VCE Extension Programs

Looking for options for your best History students?

VCE Extension Programs in history are available at the University of Melbourne and La Trobe University. Applications for 2024 open in September 2023. All of the extension programs are recognised by the VCAA and provide a fifth or sixth subject ATAR bonus (e.g. a mark of 50-59% provides an ATAR contribution of 3.0, a mark of 70-79% provides an ATAR contribution of 4.0). There is no ATAR increment for IB students, but they are eligible for the other benefits.

Students must be reasonably high-achieving students in Year 11 (Units 1 & 2), and their school and parents must support their application. Extension programs can only be undertaken in the final VCE year. Successful completion of these subjects will be counted towards a relevant degree undertaken at the providing university.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians and Traditional Custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work. The HTAV Office is located on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. These lands were never ceded. We pay our respect to their ancestors and Elders, past and present.
