Who is eligible?

E12 student

Students are eligible if they are studying at a high school that has been identified by the government as ‘low socioeconomic’ as listed on UAC's S01E list, or able to demonstrate that they are experiencing financial hardship at the time they apply for E12.

We invite you to encourage students who are eligible for E12, show potential to succeed, and would thrive on the opportunities offered by a University of Sydney education, to apply for E12 via UAC's Schools Recommendation Schemes (SRS) - students must apply for SRS and select the course they'd like to be considered for under E12 as their top University of Sydney preference.

You can read our eligibility criteria. Please note: E12 cannot be combined with any other Sydney admission pathways.

We also encourage you to consider Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students who are interested in one of our courses available through E12.
