The University of Ballarat is dedicated to increasing the participation rates in higher education of students from rural and regional areas.
REEP enables secondary students to apply for guaranteed entry into one of UB's higher education degree programs. When students apply through REEP, they are assessed on their demonstrated motivation to succeed and their contributions to their school and community, not just their ATAR.
Current Year 12 students apply for an early provisional offer. The application and selection timeline ensures that successful applicants will receive a provisional offer in time for the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) Change of Preference period in December.
Some key points:
Candidates must be enrolled as a current VCE student (or interstate equivalent) in one of the nominated schools or colleges in the following regions: Central Highlands, Wimmera, Loddon Mallee, Barwon, Western District, Hume & Gippsland. The scheme is also open to regional students from nominated schools in the Melbourne metropolitan area and NSW.
A full list of eligible schools is available at REEP eligible secondary schools and colleges 2013-2014
REEP applicants will be selected for a provisional offer by the appropriate UB Selection Officer based on the following selection criteria:
To receive their official offer through VTAC at Round 1 in January 2014, applicants with a provisional offer must have:
The number of REEP places available per UB program will vary and depend upon demand and applicant suitability. This quota is at the University's discretion and the decision of the UB Selection Officer will be final.

REEP allows applicants to be considered with regard to their motivation to succeed rather than being assessed only on their ATAR. In addition, due to the timeline of REEP, applicants will be notified of the outcome in writing by late November. The early provisional offer enables applicants to make a start on preparation for life and study at the University. Applicants who do not receive a provisional offer are informed in time for them to fully consider their options at change of preference.
Successful applicants will receive an early provisional offer; an official offer at VTAC Round 1 will be made on the condition that they meet the prerequisites and entry requirements of their chosen degree program and the minimum required ATAR.
Applications open at the same time as VTAC and SEAS applications on Monday 5th August and close on Tuesday, 8th October.
