Educational Access Scheme (EAS)
The Educational Access Scheme (EAS) helps QTAC applicants whose recent study was impacted by financial or personal challenges.
If your EAS application is successful, you may receive adjustments to your QTAC selection rank. This can help you compete for tertiary study on a more equal basis.
If you are eligible for the Financial Hardship category, you may also get financial assistance from institutions, such as scholarships or bursaries.
Your information will be kept confidential and only used to assess your eligibility for EAS.

Can I still apply for EAS if I didn’t nominate categories in my QTAC application?
Yes. To apply for EAS after lodging your QTAC application, download the cover sheets for your chosen categories and submit to us with the required documentation via email@example.com.
You will need your QTAC application number to apply for EAS.
EAS is an evidence-based scheme. To be considered for an adjustment you must:
- provide all supporting documents required in all categories
- Ensure all documents are legible and easy to read
- Upload all documents as PDFs
If you cannot provide the documentation, please submit a statement explaining why. You should also include any alternative documents that may support your case.
For more detail on supporting documents required, see the guidelines in each EAS category.
Please note: the Educational Disruption category was renamed School Environment in August 2021.
