Summer School Program


Academic Program

“Brilliant, extremely patient tutors. Deep knowledge of subject matter, couldn’t ask for more.” – 2016 VCESS Student

VCE Summer School provides academic support to students in each of the subjects they’ll be studying for the coming year. Taught by a team of tutors who are experts in their field, content will be delivered through a series of tutorials, lectures and independent tasks for students to complete. Tutors will also provide tips, tricks and pointers to achieving the best results in VCE.  Many of our tutors are available for one-on-one tutoring throughout the program. A place in the Academic Program covers all classes and materials, participation in the Activities program and any focused tutoring students require. 

Please note: Vocational Education & Training (VET), Higher School Certificate (HSC) and International Baccalaureate (IB) subjects are not offered at VCE Summer School, but students may opt to take their VCE equivalent if they wish to attend the program.

To see the subjects that were offered in 2020 see our subjects page. If you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. 

Activities & Workshops

“The mix between educational and extracurricular activities provided a nice balance between work and fun.” – 2020 VCESS Student

Summer School is not just about studying! We organise a variety of activities between academic classes to help students build teamwork skills, experience the social side of university life and have loads of fun while meeting VCE students from all around Victoria.

We run several hour-long workshops to complement the academic program and equip students with skills beyond VCE. Students select which workshops to participate in, with options ranging from sports to academic skills to life skills.

Activities and Workshops for the 2022 program will be announced later in the year.
