La Trobe Aspire Program for Year 12
Be recognised for your community service and volunteering with La Trobe's Aspire program.
Successful Aspire applicants receive an early conditional offer into their chosen course at La Trobe.
For Year 12 students this includes a minimum ATAR of 50 for entry into our courses (excluding some professional degree programs). And you'll find out in September if you've been accepted into the Aspire Program, well before your ATAR.
The La Trobe University Aspire program looks for applicants who have gained valuable skills, knowledge and experience through volunteering or making a positive contribution to their community.
They consider all types of community engagement, for example:
- volunteering with organisations or community groups
- involvement with local sports groups
- tutoring at homework clubs
- participation at other volunteer community groups
- leadership in community, sports or similar groups
- contributions to one's family beyond that which is reasonably expected.
Applications are now open and close 31 August 2018. Apply online
ACU - Community Achiever Program for Year 12
Have you volunteered in a sporting or cultural group, parish or community service activity? ACU's Community Achiever Program is designed to acknowledge commitment to local communities.
Regular volunteer work in your community - through a social justice organisation, sporting, performance, cultural or religious group - may be rewarded through the Community Achievers' Program with entry into an undergraduate degree at ACU with reduced minimum entry scores.
A successful application means you could receive an offer as early as August to study at ACU.
Who can apply?
Anyone applying for a Bachelor degree at ACU with a history of regular voluntary experience in the designated categories. Remember: the experience must have been voluntary, so ACU will not consider community involvement undertaken as part of your schoolwork, work experience or paid employment.
