The VSL is primarily an institution for school age students and the priority of the school is to cater for their needs. However, the VSL has arranged some programs for adults. Some VSL classes outside of Melbourne may have adults enrolled. All VCE classes for students (Year 11, Units 1 & 2; Year 12, Units 3 & 4) in metropolitan or regional areas may have adults enrolled if there are vacancies. Adults will not be enrolled in any other Melbourne-based classes unless they are established as 'adult only' classes.
