Assessment and offer process

How your application is assessed

Your community involvement will be assessed on:

  • Nature of experience – how were you involved, were you in a leadership role, were you part of a group, did you act independently?
  • Frequency – how many hours/days a week/month/year were you involved?
  • Duration of experience – over what period of time were you involved, ensure you include a start date and end date
  • Verification – a referee from the community organisation you have nominated will be required to verify your statement of community involvement. Please note the importance of providing accurate email contact details of your referee prior to submitting your EAP Application as inaccurate details may result in your application not being processed on time.

All applications are assessed against the same criteria, on the nature and duration of your experience. Some highly competitive courses offer a limited number of EAP places.

  • You have satisfied prerequisite requirements for the course.
  • You achieve a minimum ATAR/OP of 70/12 for Law, Law dual degrees and Physiotherapy*; 65/14 for Occupational Therapy, Paramedicine and Speech Pathology or 58.50/17 for all other ACU degrees.

If your EAP application is unsuccessful, you will be advised late November via your personal email address, as provided on your EAP application.

To receive an offer you will need to achieve the required entry score (ATAR/OP or equivalent rank) and satisfy any prerequisite requirements for the nominated course
