How to Apply

Applications for the UniSA Elite Athlete & Performing Artist Program are open all year, however we encourage you to submit your application either before or early after commencing your chosen program of study to allow us to provide you with support and guidance throughout the academic year. New students can apply as soon as they have a Student Number.
