Helping students access their potential

18 May 2022

EVERY year the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) works with institutions to help thousands of people access their potential through higher education.

UAC’s Access programs are now open.

The Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS) is one way institutions make early offers of undergraduate admission to Year 12 students using criteria other than (or in addition to) the ATAR.

In 2021, institutions made more than 15,000 offers to Year 12 students before ATARs were released.

For more information, the Schools Recommendation Schemes application guide is available on UAC’s website.

Equity Scholarships offer financial assistance to students from low socio-economic backgrounds. In 2021, more than 6,600 students received an Equity Scholarship.

The Equity Scholarships application guide is now available on UAC’s website.

UAC is holding several online sessions to help students, parents and teachers navigate the EAS application process.

Let’s Chat about applying for EAS is running tomorrow, Thursday 19 May, and Let’s Chat about SRS early offers is running on Wednesday 15 June. These webinars will be replayed later in the year.

Students and parents can also join UAC live on Facebook and Instagram on Tuesday 24 May to ask UAC’s Access Coordinator, Adam Hennessy, all about UAC’s Access schemes.

Further events are planned for the coming months. Check UAC’s Key Dates page for details.
