Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS)
This is a simple application via your UAC account. Once you apply for SRS, you need to add eligible courses to your preferences list. Consider courses at Macquarie University, ACU, Western Sydney University, and UTS.
Educational Access Scheme (EAS)
The Educational Access Scheme (EAS) awards adjustment factors to those students whose studies have been disadvantaged for at least 6 months in Years 11 and/or 12. Please visit UAC’s EAS website for information on the categories of disadvantage that may apply to you and your family. Please note that two codes have been added; F01S and F01K. These relate to a parent/carer receiving either Job Seeker or Job Keeper as a result of the pandemic.
Macquarie University: 5 Automatic COVID-19 Impact Points
Macquarie University (MQ) recognises the significant impact the pandemic has had on students. Therefore, Year 12 students applying to MQ for a Session 1, 2022 undergraduate degree or Term 1 or 2 undergraduate certificate, diploma or foundation program, 2022, will automatically receive five COVID-19 Impact Points.
Prospective students will not have to apply for these additional adjustment factors as they will be automatically applied via their Universities Admission Centre (UAC) application.
These additional adjustment factors can be used for admission to all courses except MQ’s Actuarial degrees (and double degree combinations) and Co-op programs.
