Schools Access Monash is a program of activities delivered together with Western Port Secondary College for Year 8 – 12 students. The aim is to encourage and inform students’ aspirations to higher education and instill the idea that a university education is for them.
The programs and activities are informed by current research into widening participation in higher education. Students have the opportunity to engage in higher education, experience campus life, and make informed decisions for their future.
