Inclusive and equitable education
We contribute to social mobility through our capacity to recognise, support and extend talented students from educationally disadvantaged backgrounds, low socio-economic status areas or for those experiencing financial hardship. We do this through programs such as the Special Entry Access Scheme, and Monash Guarantee.
There was an increase in students eligible for both schemes in 2020, which has resulted in a higher number of offers being made to students from low SES communities, and a subsequent increase in the number of enrolments of low-SES students. In 2020, 1,765 students were made an offer under the Monash Guarantee, an increase on the 1,570 students in 2019.
