Juris Doctor – Cadigal Alternative Entry Program
The Cadigal Alternative Entry Program is both a special entry scheme and an academic support program for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants from all types of academic backgrounds. It is available for admission into all of the University’s undergraduate courses that are offered through the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC).
The program aims to encourage greater participation in tertiary education by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students. However, like all the University’s application schemes, applying under this program is optional. You do not have to apply through this program just because you are an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander applicant.
The program is managed by Student Support Services for the majority of the University’s courses.
If you are interested in applying for consideration under this program please visit the Cadigal Program page on the Student Services website
