International applications and offers

Apply/manage

Steps to completing your application

  1. Enter your personal details (including a personal email address). The name on your application must match the name on your official ID, otherwise you’ll have problems when you enrol.
  2. Enter your 2018 or 2019 Year 12 student number and UAC PIN.
  3. Provide details of your studies and qualifications (including completed secondary studies and complete or incomplete certificate, diploma and degree studies).
  4. Select up to six course preferences. There are no 2020 start dates to select yet. They will be added progressively from mid-April 2019, as each uni confirms them.
  5. Accept the applicant declaration.
  6. Pay for your application with a credit card (Mastercard or Visa) or PayPal account. 2019 Year 12 students can also pay using BPAY or Post Billpay (in Australia only). Your application is not complete until you have paid.

After you apply, check your email regularly for updates on your application. 

Once you've applied, you can change the order of your preferences – or even the courses you’ve selected – as often as you like before the closing dates for each offer round. (Some courses have early application closing dates so check for these as well.) Simply log in to your application using your UAC application number and UAC PIN. You can't change your preferences by phone, letter or email.

Application and offer dates for 2019-20 admissions

Most offers to 2019 Year 12 applicants will be made after ATARs are released in December, but there are many offer rounds throughout the year.

Offers

Offers are released here at 7.30am on each offer round date. Click the 'Apply or log in' button at the top of the page and log in to 'International offers' with your UAC application number and UAC PIN.

We'll also send you an email, so it is important that we have your correct email address. This can be updated at any time via your application. 

You can receive one offer per institution in each offer round.

For example, if you list six courses, all for Western Sydney University, in your application, you'll only receive one offer – from Western Sydney University – to the highest course listed for which you are eligible and competitive enough.

If you list six courses, three for Macquarie University and three for the University of Newcastle, you'll receive two offers – one to the highest course listed at Macquarie University for which you are eligible and competitive enough, and one to the highest course listed at the University of Newcastle for which you are eligible and competitive enough.

To be offered a place in a course you must:

  • be eligible to be considered by meeting the academic requirements of the institution and the specific entrance requirements of the course
  • compete against other eligible applicants.
Conditional and unconditional offers

CONDITIONAL OFFERS

Approximately 48 hours after you have applied through UAC, you’ll receive a conditional offer letter, which you may use as part of your pre-visa assessment if required. Your conditional offer letter will list all the courses for which you have applied. Access this letter by logging in to your application.

This letter is a conditional offer of admission only; it doesn't mean you are eligible to enrol in a course of study. To be eligible to enrol in a course of study, you need to receive an unconditional offer, meet the minimum admission requirements of the institution and compete against other applicants for a place.

UNCONDITIONAL OFFERS

To receive an unconditional offer for a course you must have it in your list of courses when offers are made, have a selection rank (or equivalent) equal to/or higher than the final lowest selection rank for admission to the course, and have met any other entry requirements for the course.

UAC starts issuing unconditional offer letters to successful applicants on behalf of institutions mid-May. However, most offers will be made from mid-December, after final Year 12 results have been received.

You do not have to provide a copy of your results to UAC as we obtain them directly from the relevant Australian organisation or the New Zealand Qualifications Authority. 

Ask your school IB Diploma coordinator to authorise the International Baccalaureate (IB) to release your IB Diploma results directly to UAC. This needs to be done in addition to any other request for results to be sent to an institution.

As interstate Year 12, International Baccalaureate and New Zealand NCEA results are released on various dates, UAC cannot guarantee inclusion and assessment of these results in time for a specific offer round.

Unsuccessful applicants

If you don't receive an offer in one round, you can log in to your application and change your course selection for the following round. If you are not made any offers for admission throughout the year, we'll email you after the February and March rounds.
