How to apply for EAS


Applications for 2017–18 will open on Wed 2 August 2017.

You can only submit one EAS application for 2017–18 admissions.

To apply for EAS you must:

  • Apply for admission to an undergraduate course through UAC's undergraduate website. You'll need your UAC application number to complete your EAS application.
  • Read the categories of disadvantage tables for details of each disadvantage, eligibility criteria and the documentation you must provide.
  • Complete all relevant sections of the 2017–18 EAS application form, including the required applicant, educational impact, or medical impact statements.
  • Sign and submit your EAS application. If you don’t sign your EAS application form it won’t be assessed.
  • Include all necessary supporting documentation with your EAS application form. Disadvantages claimed without providing the necessary supporting documentation will not be assessed. UAC will not contact you regarding missing or insufficient supporting documentation.
  • Post, deliver or courier your EAS application to UAC so that we receive it at least two weeks before the published undergraduate offer round in which you wish to be considered. We don’t accept emailed or faxed EAS applications and we don’t make allowances or take responsibility for late courier or postal deliveries, or lost postal applications.
