Eligibility criteria

A student is eligible for Chinese Second Language ​Advanced if:

they have had no more than 7 years of education in a school where Chinese is the medium of instruction

the highest level of education attained in a school where Chinese is the medium of instruction is no greater than the equivalent of Year 7 in a Victorian school.

The time periods referred to in these criteria will be counted cumulatively since the time of the student’s birth.

As the formal education commencement age for a Victorian student is 5 years of age, then all applicants will be deemed to have commenced formal education by the end of their 5th year of age, regardless of the setting.

See the Enrolment application form.
