Schools Access Monash

Schools Access Monash (SAM) aims to increase students' understanding of higher education and their readiness for university studies. The program is available to schools with a significant number of students from disadvantaged backgrounds or low rates of progression to university study.

The program delivers a range of in-school and on-campus activities that allow students to engage in higher education at an early stage of their development, as well as experience university life first hand via interactive sessions.
