What are they?
Data shows that a country student’s transition to University or TAFE can be a rocky one. To address this issue a number of institutions offer ‘early entry’ schemes to balance-out this phenomenon.
Most Early Entry Schemes are targeted at rural/regional students, which is a fair call, because they face more obstacles and disadvantages when compared to their city-metro-cousins.
