Imagine having a guaranteed place in a law program before beginning your final HSC exams. University of Newcastle Law School is offering students from a refugee background the opportunity to gain early entry to our degree.
Recognising the need to increase the representation of people from refugee backgrounds in the Australian legal profession and allied fields, the School is inviting applications from eligible students currently preparing for their Higher School Certificate or enrolled in an enabling program to apply for entry to the Bachelor of Laws (Honours) Combined.
This is a five-year, full-time program, in which you will complete your Bachelor of Laws (Honours) alongside another degree program of your choice.
Not only will you get early entry into this degree, you will have access to:
- A guaranteed place in University accommodation at the Callaghan Campus
- A pre-law orientation program
- A mentoring scheme pairing new students with more senior students
- Support services coordinated through the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education.
Applications for entry are open now through UAC, and close mid-September.
