RMIT's Schools Network Access Program (SNAP) is one of the ways in which we ensure a diverse and inclusive student population.
The SNAP access scheme is designed to increase tertiary access and participation of eligible students from SNAP partner schools by giving them priority access to RMIT’s certificate IV, diploma, advanced diploma, associate degree and degree programs.
If you are not sure whether you go to a SNAP school, check out the list here.
Am I eligible?
To be eligible to receive SNAP consideration you must:
- be an Australian or New Zealand citizen, or hold a permanent Australian residency
- be a current student at a SNAP school
- be endorsed by your school
- successfully complete any RMIT program prerequisites and extra requirements, including the alternative minimum English study score.
How it works
SNAP applicants who have their school’s endorsement may receive additional consideration when applying for programs at RMIT.
For programs that select on ATAR, eligible SNAP applicants receive a significant re-ranking if their ATAR is no more than 20 points below the clearly-in ATAR for that program.
For programs that select on a range of criteria, such as folio or interview, SNAP applicants will receive consideration on their performance in these tasks.
SNAP minimum English study scores
SNAP applicants are required to meet an alternative minimum English study score. For entry to bachelor degree courses, the minimum English study score for SNAP applicants is 5 points lower than the published English study score.
For example, where a program has a published minimum English study score of 25 in any English (except EAL) or 30 in English (EAL), SNAP applicants must achieve a minimum study score of 20 in any English (except EAL) or 25 in English (EAL).
How to apply
- Apply for programs of your choice through VTAC.
- Apply for the Special Entry Access Scheme (SEAS), and answer yes to Question 1, Category 1.
- Speak to your school about applying for SNAP so that your school can consider endorsing you.
