ACCESS (EAS) / SCATS
ACCESS is a scheme for students who have experienced long-term educational disadvantage in high school. Some of the places offered under this scheme will be in the Bonded Medical Places category. Visit the UNSW ACCESS Scheme website for further information.
If you have undertaken university studies and your secondary or tertiary studies were affected by circumstances beyond your control, then SCATS is for you. Visit the UNSW Future Students website where you can download the SCATS application form.
