Main Round (January Round 2)

Most offers will be made in the Main Round at 6pm on Wednesday 18 January 2017 when all institutions try to make enough offers to fill the places they have available.

UAC's institutions made more than 44,000 offers in the Main Round in 2016.

Remember that many courses have early closing dates for applying and providing documents. Check the course descriptions through the course search before you apply or change your preferences.


What happens if I don’t receive an offer in the Main Round?

If you don't receive an offer, you'll be sent an email advising you to check your correspondence via Check & Change. The correspondence will detail why you have been unsuccessful for each preference. Wait until you have read your letter before seeking advice. UAC can’t give you any further information other than that in the letter. Contact the relevant institution for further advice on your study options.

Your preferences will automatically be considered in the same order in subsequent rounds. To be considered for other courses for study, however, you must change your preferences through Check & Change or the My UAC app.

Alternative study options

When you apply, you'll be asked if you would like to receive information about alternative study options should your application be unsuccessful. If you select ‘Yes’, at the end of major offer rounds (such as the Main Round for semester 1 and June Round 2 for semester 2) you may be contacted by institutions (including some not included in your preferences) with details of other available study options. You can opt out of receiving this information through Check & Change.
