Study review

Study Review Plan

The Study Review Plan provides key information on the review of VCE Studio Arts, being conducted in 2020/21. VCE study designs currently under review in 2020/21 will now be delivered by schools in 2023 (rather than 2022).


Consultation on the VCE Studio Arts Study Design is now closed.

The review panel will consider all responses to the consultation draft before a final draft of the study design is prepared.

The final draft of the study design will be considered by the Board of the VCAA. Any updates on the progress of the review will be published in the VCAA Bulletin.
