Echuca College takes great PRIDE in the achievements of our students at all levels and particularly our VCE Class of 2015. During January our ‘Class of 2015’ received their University and TAFE offers. We had 61 students apply through VTAC with 91% receiving a first round offer and 80% receiving either their first (60%) or second preference. In December 2015, a number of our students also received “Early Offers” to universities in Victoria and NSW and other will still receive offers as universities work their way through their selection process well into February. A number of students have also received scholarships.  Our students have received offers in a broad range of university courses at both Melbourne and Regional campuses; including Geoscience, Bioscience, Professional Writing, Psychology, Veterinary and Wildlife Science, Sports Management and Commerce.  We also have a number of students involved in Education, Nursing and the Health Sciences. The achievements of our College Captains provide us with an insight to the opportunities afforded our students this year with offers to them to study Commerce/Law at Deakin, Arts at Melbourne University, Arts/Science Deakin and Sports Management /Business at Victorian University.  The College is very proud of the achievements of our Year 12s and the various vocations and courses they are now accessing.   I would like to thank our VCE Team that worked with students to successfully put these opportunities in place for our students.
