EDUCATION

Reinforcing our Commitment

In 2019 Open Door was funded by the DVA Supporting Younger Veterans Grant to produce a Miliaty Academic Pathway Program. The MAPP is the only course of its kind in Australia removing the ATAR requirements, taking into account military service, skills and experience and offering access to over 85 per cent of Flinders Univesity awards upon successful completion. 

The MAPP has a completion rate of 80 per cent and 80 per cent of candidates indicate they wish to go onto further university study.
