Elite Student Athlete and Performer Entry Scheme

Monash is committed to helping students combine academic success with sporting or performing arts success. We know that for an elite athlete or performer, your ATAR might not accurately reflect your ability and we acknowledge the commitment and time it takes to be at the elite level and how this can affect your studies.

If you're an elite athlete or performer, you may be eligible for Monash University’s Elite Student Performer Entry Scheme.
