Applications for semester 2 have closed.

Applications for semester 1, 2019 open 1 August 2018.

  4. Select up to six course preferences.

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.

Important dates for international applications

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

* Do not change your courses between this date and the date offers are released; if you do, you may miss out on an offer to your preferred course.


Offers are released here at 7.30am on each offer round date. Click 'Check your offers' and log in with your UAC application number and UAC PIN.

We'll also send you an alert email instructing you to log in to your application and check your correspondence, so it is important that we have your correct email address. This can be updated at any time via your application. You should view this correspondence as it may include additional information relating to your offer.

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


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.


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 at the end of September. However, most offers will be made from mid-December, after your 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. We can obtain your results directly from the International Baccalaureate Organisation if you authorise their release to UAC via the Request for Results Service on the International Baccalaureate Information System (IBIS).

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 were not made any offers for admission in semester 1, in mid-February 2018 we advised you that your application was unsuccessful.
