SRS applications open on Wed 2 Aug 2017 and close at midnight on Fri 29 Sep 2017.
Receiving your offer
Unconditional and conditional SRS offers will be made on Thursday 16 November 2017. You may receive one unconditional offer and one or more conditional offers in this round.
While UAC co-ordinates the SRS process, participating institutions decide who receives an offer, not UAC.
Institutions consider your course preferences according to the order in which you list them. All your preferences are given equal consideration.
If you are made an offer, you’ll receive an email to let you know that you have correspondence from UAC. To access your offer, log in to your undergraduate application and go to ‘View correspondence’.
UAC does not contact applicants who have been unsuccessful in receiving an SRS offer.
Types of offers
There are two types of offers available under SRS. Successful applicants may receive:
- a conditional offer (where there are additional criteria you must meet, such as a minimum ATAR, portfolio or audition)
- an unconditional SRS offer (where there are no further requirements for you to meet).
Refer to the SRS institution information tables to find out what type of offers institutions will make to SRS applicants.
Conditional SRS offers
Conditional SRS offers require you to meet other criteria before the institution will make you an unconditional offer. These requirements may include a minimum ATAR, course prerequisites, a personal statement, a portfolio, an audition, an interview or a test. Conditional SRS offers will only be made in November Round 1 on Thursday 16 November 2017 and can be made to any preference.
To convert your conditional offer to an unconditional offer, you must:
- meet the criteria stipulated in the letter
- meet all other institution requirements for that course
- include the course in your list of preferences by midnight on Sunday 17 December 2017.
It is possible to receive more than one conditional offer, but only one of them can become an unconditional offer on Thursday 21 December 2017 (December Round 2).
If you receive more than one conditional offer, once your ATAR is released you can determine if you meet the criteria for those offers. You will then need to decide which course preference you would most like to convert into an unconditional offer and order your preferences accordingly by midnight on Sunday 17 December 2017.
Unconditional SRS offers
Unconditional SRS offers can be made in any round from November Round 1, on 16 November 2017, onwards. You may only receive one unconditional offer in each round.
If you’re not selected for an unconditional offer for your first preference, you’ll be considered equally with all other eligible applicants for your second preference and so on.
To accept your unconditional offer, follow the instructions set out in your offer letter. You must accept your offer by the date specified by the institution, otherwise you may lose your offer.
