We're really excited for you to join the Melbourne Polytechnic community and we look forward to supporting you on your education journey.
The first step to enrolling is completing the application form located on the course page that you're intending to study. You'll then receive a link to complete a few more personal details. We'll send you an email to confirm these requirements. Below is an outline of the steps following the application form for local students undertaking VET courses.

A pre-training review is used to determine why you have chosen to do this course and how it meets your aspirations and interests. It also helps us to understand your competency levels and digital skills to assist us to tailor your training plan.
The Pre-Training Review also helps to identify skills recognition and credit transfers when applying for a vocational education course.
The Pre-Training Review can be completed during your enrolment appointment with an Education and Course Advisor.
To book your appointment, call us on 1300 635 276.
Each student is required by the state government to undertake a Literacy and Numeracy assessment, regardless of whether or not you have a previous qualification. This assessment is completed online. Our Education and Course Advisors will provide you with a unique login and thereafter provide you with the assessment score outcome.
The Training Plan is your study plan. This document lists all of the modules you are enrolled in, and study hours. This document also identifies the course code, start date, support requirements, delivery modes and assessment methods.
Here we will review and record your ID, Citizenship/Residency and if applicable, concession status.
Check to see if you can get state government-subsidised training:

We’ll run through course fees, payment options, Government VET Student Loan eligibility and finalise enrolment by completing fee payment.
Your enrolment is not confirmed until payment is made.
Some courses, such as those visual or performing arts require an interview or audition in addition to your online application. After completing your online application, book an interview or audition via our online booking system. In most cases, this is an informal discussion around your creative practice, technical skills, what you hope to gain from study and includes a presentation of a folio of work, demonstrating your ideas, skill or ability.
For those courses that require an interview or audition, teaching staff will contact you afterwards with either an offer of a place in the course or provide further guidance and discuss alternative course options.
