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 mid October 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.
- Open - 10am 1 May 2020
- Close - Midnight 12 August July 2020
- Offers will be released mid October 2020
