Educational Access Scheme

Athletes & Performers
Bonus points can also be awarded if your academic performance has been hindered by competition or training
School Partner Program Preferred Admission Scheme
Macquarie University, through its School Partner Program, is offering two Higher School Certificate students from each Partner School a selection bonus of five points for enrolment into programs of study at Macquarie University.
The Preferred Admission Scheme aims to assist students whose ATAR score may not reflect their ability to succeed in their chosen field of study at university level in gaining access to their preferred tertiary education option.
Only applications submitted by schools will be accepted. Applications sent directly to the University will be returned to the school.
University of Sydney Elite Athlete Program
For over a century, sport has been an integral element of the student experience at The University of Sydney. Over 300 Australian representatives, including more than 115 Olympians and almost 100 Wallabies, have studied at the University and graduated as leaders both on and off the sporting field.
This year, over 370 student athletes across more than 35 sports became part of Australia's oldest and richest academic and sporting tradition. Over 260 elite athletes were offered sports scholarships, while more than 110 emerging athletes were placed on our Talented Athlete Program. We recognise that pursuing your academic and sporting goals simultaneously can be challenging. That's why as part of the Program, you can receive financial assistance, take advantage of some of Australia's finest sport and fitness facilities, and access a wide range of invaluable student athlete services.
Elite Athlete & Performers Scheme (EAPS)
Offered by The University of Sydney, this is a special entry scheme for domestic applicants seeking admission into undergraduate courses who can demonstrate that they are elite athletes or performers and have had training, competitive and/or practice commitments which have significantly affected their results.
Approval under this scheme may mean gaining admission into a course with an ATAR of up to five points below the regular cut-off.
In addition to applying through UAC, you must complete an application form and submit supporting documentation before the end of October 2011.
To apply, please contact the University’s Admission Office on 8627 8210 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
UNE Early Entry
UNE Early Entry is a program that allocates a place at UNE to current Year 12 or equivalent students based on their school’s recommendation rather than their final marks.
Places are awarded to recognise your hard work and contribution to school life throughout your high school years.
There are lots of great reasons to apply for early entry, such as:
wanting to know early that you have a UNE place to relieve the pressure of waiting for results or so you can plan your big move
you have studied subjects that won’t get you an ATAR (formerly UAI) or OP, but you still want to go to UNE
extra security to make sure you get in to the course of your choice
The best part about UNE Early Entry is that if you are successful, and do not do as well as expected in your Year 12 exams, you may still have a place at UNE.
UNE Early Entry is available for most UNE degrees, to:
current Year 12 students
full-time students preparing to sit for the full NSW HSC in TAFE colleges in NSW and the ACT
full-time TAFE Tertiary Preparation Certificate students.
You must also intend to study full-time and on-campus in Armidale.
Applications Close 30 September 2011
Students from selected schools may also choose to study their first year in selected courses at UNE and transition to The University of Sydney in their second year.
Scholarships at UNE
UNE is committed to helping students to reach their potential by offering a wide range of scholarship opportunities.
Bond University Film & Television Awards (BUFTA)
The Bond University Film and Television Awards (BUFTA) is a short film competition open to any year 11 or 12 secondary school student in Australia. Originally started in 1996, the competition has grown to become one of the most rewarding competitions in the Southern Hemisphere.
The philosophy behind BUFTA is to offer a system of recognition for today's young filmmakers. Students are encouraged to enter short films made as part of school assessments or as independent projects. There are a number of different categories for films to be entered into and winners are chosen for the most outstanding film in each category.
Students are to enter an application in one of the following categories
The Best Overall Filmaker will receive a full scholarship to Bond University, to study a Bachelor of Film and Television at the Centre for Film, Television and Screen-based Media, valued at $91,680. Some conditions do apply and for more information please contact BUFTA.
Prizes will be awarded to the winners of each category, as well as each craft award recipient. The best overall school will also receive a prize. The Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences will also choose his favourite film to receive a special award.
BUFTA Competition concludes on Friday 7th October 2011
