How can I find the current accreditation status of VCE studies?

The accreditation period for each VCE study is provided in its study design and on the study specific webpage, which you can access via the VCE Study Designs page. Where an accreditation period has been extended, the revised date will be posted on the relevant VCE study page

A summary of the accreditation status of all VCE studies is also available in the VCAA Bulletin.

How can I obtain VCE Study Designs?

Study Designs for the current accreditation period of the VCE Study are available online from each of the VCE Study Design pages on this website.

Study Designs are no longer distributed in hard copy.

How can I obtain Assessment Handbooks for VCE studies?

For each new or revised VCE study from 2015, information that was formerly contained in a separate Assessment Handbook has been incorporated into a single Advice for teachers publication. Studies accredited prior to 2015 have an Advice for teachers publication and an Assessment Handbook. Advice for teachers and Assessment Handbooks are available from the VCE Study Design pages.

Visit the individual VCE Study Design pages to find recent updates to coursework material.
