How to apply for the Elite Athletes and Artistic Performers Entry Scheme as an undergraduate.
Elite Athletes and Artistic Performers Entry Scheme
If you're an elite athlete or performing artist you may be eligible for the Elite Athletes and Artistic Performers Entry Scheme.
Additional consideration can be given for entry into Melbourne undergraduate and graduate degrees to applicants who:
- are an Australian or New Zealand citizen or Australian permanent resident or holder of a permanent humanitarian visa
- are recognised as an elite athlete or performing artist by one of these organisations
- meet the prerequisites (and any other published entry requirements) of the course
- can demonstrate that they have undertaken elite training, competition, performance and/or practice commitments whilst preparing for entry to the University of Melbourne.
The athletic or performance activity you nominate also can't be associated with the degree you're applying for, i.e. elite musicians applying for the Bachelor of Music.
Eligible athletes can also apply to Melbourne's Elite Athlete Program for sports scholarships and support.
Undergraduate and graduate applications
You can apply for the scheme after you apply for your undergraduate or graduate degree.
