SAE participates in the UAC Schools Recommendation Scheme. This scheme enables schools to recommend current Year 12 students for an early offer at SAE based on their academic merit and achievement if they apply through UAC.

Applications are processed centrally by UAC, with entry interviews conducted by SAE during the months of August through to November the year prior to enrollment.

For more information regarding the scheme and how to apply please visit the Schools Recommendation Scheme.
