    Graduate Access Melbourne (GAM) is the University’s equity program for domestic graduate students.  Under GAM, specific circumstances of applicants will be considered in relation to admission and financial assistance bursaries. There are two parts to this program:

    1. Admission: Graduate Access Melbourne may assist you to gain admission into a graduate degree, even if your tertiary marks are below the entry requirements.  In assessing applications faculties and schools look to balance opportunity and your capacity to succeed.
    2. Financial Assistance: Under GAM you are also considered for a grant of $5,000.  Bursaries will be offered to students with the highest overall level of current disadvantage within one or more of the Graduate Access Melbourne categories.

    In submitting an application under this program, you will be considered for admission and financial assistance. Completed GAM forms are to be submitted together with your course application and will be considered for entry into the course and the Graduate Access Melbourne bursary. An application does not guarantee success and you may be awarded one, neither or both, depending on your individual circumstances.

    To be eligible to apply for GAM you must be an Australian or New Zealand citizen, an Australian permanent resident or the holder of a permanent Humanitarian Visa.  You need to demonstrate the capacity to succeed in the Masters’ degree of your choice and qualify under one or more of the following equity categories:

    • Indigenous Australian
    • previous status as a refugee
    • disadvantaged socio-economic circumstances
    • disability or chronic medical condition
    • difficult personal circumstances.
