What happens when a course is cancelled?

Courses offered through VTAC are sometimes cancelled by institutions.

Once a course is cancelled, it is removed from CourseSearch and can no longer be added to a Course Application.

If you have already added a course to your preference list that is later cancelled, VTAC will notify you by email. The course code will remain on your preference list but the course name will be replaced by “Course is unavailable or has been cancelled. Please select another course.” You may also be contacted by the institution that offers the course, suggesting some alternative courses if they’re available.

VTAC keeps a list of all new and cancelled courses on our New and Cancelled Courses page. When referring to this list, ensure you read carefully – a course might be cancelled at a particular campus or for a certain fee type, but not for others.

For example, an institution may cancel a course code ending in ‘3’ but that doesn’t mean that the whole course is cancelled, only the international course offering.

What to do if one of your course preferences is cancelled

• If change of preference is open, you can add another course to replace the cancelled one.

• If change of preference is closed and you have other courses listed, they will continue to be considered in the offer rounds. If the cancelled course is your only course listed on your preferences, contact VTAC immediately.

• You might also contact the institution directly to see if they have any alternatives available through VTAC.

• Explore CourseSearch to look for other courses of interest.
