Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) workshop

The SEAS workshop provides Year 12 students with support from university staff on how to develop a SEAS application.

Workshop overview

The Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS) aims to make the university selection process fairer for students who have experienced circumstances that have impacted their education. All students at DEAP partner schools are eligible under at least one category.

This workshop aims to support students in their SEAS applications. Students will be guided in identifying those factors which may impact, or have impacted, their education, and how to link these to a SEAS application. The workshop gives students the opportunity to prepare for a SEAS application by putting together a draft statement.


The SEAS workshop aims to enable students to:

  • increase their understanding of what SEAS means to them
  • increase their preparedness to complete a SEAS application, ultimately increasing access to university.

School requirements

Individual schools are required to:

  • organise rooms in school for workshops to occur
  • maintain responsibility for student conduct, behaviour, and medical issues.

Today was very informative, it helped me better understand the Special Entry Access Scheme and its application process.
