What is the ADFHEAS Scheme?
The Scheme offers ADF members (current, past and Reserve), pathways into
specific higher education courses with defined advanced standing for their
Defence provided education, training and development.
Who is it for?
The Scheme is for current, past and Reserve ADF members, who meet
the entry requirements specified by each participating university for the
qualifications on offer, to undertake Undergraduate or Post Graduate studies.
Which universities are involved?
Currently we have 29 universities that offer pathways with agreed levels
of "advanced standing" toward a number of their awards for defined
Defence education and training. 24 of these universities focus on pathways
for undergraduate studies *, (11 on line at time of printing * *) with the all
29 offering Post Graduate pathways.
The amount of advanced standing given does vary from university to
