Why can’t I apply directly through VTAC (Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre)?

The Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) is the central office that administers the application and offer process for places in tertiary courses at university, TAFE and independent tertiary colleges in Victoria (and a few outside Victoria).
Not all independent tertiary colleges are managed through VTAC, and as Eastern College Australia is an independent college we have chosen to manage our own application process internally.
If you visit the VTAC website you will notice that Eastern College Australia is not yet a listed institution.
