Special Consideration for Admission Scheme

Female student studying in classroom

The Special Consideration for Admission Scheme is for applicants with a record of tertiary study who have experienced some form of disadvantage during their secondary and/or tertiary studies.

An applicant who is approved under this scheme may be admitted into their course of choice with results below, but close to, the normal entry standard for that course. This scheme will not allow applicants to gain admission with results that are well below the course entry standard.

This scheme is available for domestic applicants seeking admission into undergraduate courses that are offered through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).

Application process

In addition to applying through UAC, you need to complete an application form and submit supporting documentation which proves your claims. You should return your completed application, including supporting documentation, to the Admissions Office before the end of November.

Although there is no formal Special Consideration Scheme for Semester 2 intake, the above form is still applicable for some courses (except Engineering and IT courses).

Completed Special Consideration applications must be submitted by Friday 20 June 2014 for June Round Offers.
