2018 EAS schools lists

UAC is providing the following schools data for stakeholders in the Educational Access Schemes (EAS) program, compiled from publicly available sources. UAC makes no decisions as to which schools are included in the relevant State government programs or which schools are nominated by the Catholic Education Commission or the NSW Association of Independent Schools.

UAC categorises schools in rural and regional areas of Australia according to criteria provided by its participating institutions and based on data sourced from the Australian Bureau of Statistics and Google maps.
