International Baccalaureate Scholarship

If you are a high-achieving IB graduate in 2013, consider applying for the Deakin University International Baccalaureate Excellence Scholarship. This scholarship aims to demonstrate Deakin's commitment to continuing education and the awarding of scholarships for academic excellence. For more information visit the International Baccalaureate scholarship web page.


At Deakin, the study score for students who complete VCE English as a Second Language (ESL) as part of their VCE will be five points higher than for other VCE English students. This means that IB students who undertake English B, which is deemed equivalent to VCE ESL, will be required to achieve the equivalent of a study score five points higher than IB students who undertake English A1/A2.

You can view a list of the VTAC Equivalent Pre-requisite Studies for interstate and International Baccalaureate studies via the VTAC website.

Conversion of IB scores to notional ENTER/ATAR

The VTAC website hosts a table that enables applicants to convert IB scores into the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) ENTER/ATAR.

For more information please visit the IB equivalency table on the VTAC web site.
