RMIT’s access schemes ensure that people from the widest range of backgrounds have an opportunity to access RMIT programs.
How do equity access schemes work?
VTAC’s Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) and RMIT Access allow us to consider disadvantages and circumstances that may have impacted on your academic performance.
Eligible applicants can receive an adjustment to the calculation of their selection rank, which can increase the chances of receiving an offer.
For programs that select primarily on ATAR, any adjustments you are eligible to receive are used in combination with your ATAR to calculate your selection rank.
For programs that select on Range of Criteria, where selection is based on your performance in selection tasks such as interviews or folio presentations, you will receive an equivalent level of adjustment to your results in these selection tasks.
Who can apply?
To apply for equity consideration, you must be:
- applying to study a certificate IV, diploma, advanced diploma, associate degree, or undergraduate degree, and
- an Australian or New Zealand citizen, or
- an Australian Permanent Resident, or
- an Australian Permanent Humanitarian Visa holder, or
- a person seeking asylum.
Individual equity access schemes have their own eligibility criteria. Learn more about the schemes.
