The University of Melbourne is helping students who have faced hardship in Years 11 and 12 to gain entry to university through their special consideration scheme, Access Melbourne.
For students who are currently in Year 12, the impacts of both the 2019/20 bushfires and COVID-19 will be taken into consideration with your application.
To apply for Access Melbourne, you will need to apply for your undergraduate course through VTAC, then apply for the Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) with VTAC. You will also need to provide an impact statement as part of your application.
The University of Melbourne will then assess each application on a case-by-case basis.
