Alternative entry schemes

The Faculty of Health Sciences offers a number of alternative entry schemes to prospective undergraduate students.

The new expanded Broadway Scheme for rural students looking to undertake health sciences courses

Rural students that want to study at Health Sciences can do so under the The New Expanded Broadway Scheme - eligibility for certain high schools.

Through this scheme, the University is granting automatic Broadway eligibility to students who complete their schooling at a high school that falls under the NSW Government Country Area Program (CAP) category. If your school has the aforementioned classifaction, no application is required.

However, students who are attending a school in the above category, and wish to claim additional educational disadvantages, they will be required to complete an EAS application.
