‘The VCE provided a great English language learning environment, which definitely enhanced my English skills. The teachers at my school were really dedicated to helping us and I received a lot of support and advice from them about my university options.

As a VCE Offshore teacher now, I’m determined to assist more students to be successful in their future academic career.’

‘I enjoyed the VCE, because we were encouraged to do teamwork, give our opinion about things we studied, and schedule and manage our own study time. The VCE gave us the opportunity to explore our potential. I was thrilled to gain a study score of 50/50 for VCE Chinese First Language and I was awarded the Premier’s Award as the top student in that study for my year. After completing the VCE I was accepted to study commerce.’
