Are you a partner, spouse, or child of a Veteran? You may be eligible
Finding meaningful employment is important to all Australians. Often for the family members of ADF personnel there can be significant barriers when pursuing educational/employment goals due to service commitments such as posting cycles, deployments and/or locality. This pathway aims to provide recognition of these challenges and sacrifices by giving the opportunity to access a range of study options, increasing employability and opening the door to meaningful employment.
This entry pathway is available to any partner, spouse, or child over the age of 18 of current/previous serving ADF personnel. Applications are handled on a case-by-case basis though as a rule of thumb 2-years of service is required. If you are unsure of your eligibility, we encourage you to contact one of our Student Veteran Services team to discuss further.
Applications can be made directly to ACU through the Veterans Entry Program web form. Applicants will be required to submit a copy of their partner, spouses or parents ADF Service Record. Following application, you will be contacted to schedule an interview date and requested for supporting documentation including a written ‘motivation to study’ form.
