Veteran Entry Program (VEP)

The Veterans Entry Program (VEP) is a direct entry pathway into higher education at Australian Catholic University. The VEP recognises your service in the Army, Navy or Air-Force. Your service is then assessed and converted into an Entry Rank, similar to an ATAR. Once this entry rank has been identified it is matched to the requirements of the course you are interested in and an offer is made based on this outcome. The VEP increases your accessibility to higher education.
