The Hansen Scholarship Program
Applications for the University of Melbourne’s new flagship equity scholarship are now open.
Twenty exceptional students from around Australia will be chosen in the first intake for our most generous scholarship to date, starting their undergraduate studies at Melbourne in 2020.
The program brings together an unrivalled package of benefits for high-achieving students who may otherwise struggle financially to access higher education.
It offers free accommodation, living allowances, funds for an international exchange, internship or voluntary opportunity, plus a tailored enrichment program including academic orientation, study skills, mentoring and cultural activities.
Applications close at 3pm AEDT on 21 March 2019.

VET pathways for high school students
Griffith recognises the skills and knowledge gained through Vocational Education and Training (VET) as a highly effective pathway to university. While Griffith encourages high school students to achieve an OP or ATAR, we will continue our policy of recognising stand-alone VET qualifications completed at high school. Students that complete a Certificate III, IV or Diploma and meet the English prerequisite may be eligible for a place in a range of Griffith degrees.

Changes to Bonded Medical Places (BMP)
As of January 2020, the Bonded Medial Places (BMP) program will be reformed as part of measures announced in the 2018/19 Federal budget.
Under this program, a small percentage of medicine students enter into an agreement with the Federal Government to do a period of service in a geographic area of high need – usually regional or rural areas.
The existing agreement currently requires students to complete 12 months return of service within an area of workforce shortage. Under the new scheme, students accepted into a bonded place from 2020 will be required to complete 3 years return of service.
The new scheme will also introduce an interactive web portal and other digital communication channels to help bonded students better understand and manage their bonded obligations.
All existing BMP Scheme participants will have the opportunity to opt-in to the new arrangements which aim to encourage more doctors to work and stay in rural and remote areas.
