Managing your application

After you apply, you can log back in to your application to make changes, upload documents, complete any required questionnaires and track the progress of your assessment.

Changing your course preferences

If you change your mind about what you want to study, simply log in to your application and change your preferences. Don’t start a new application. To cancel your application, write to or email UAC and include your UAC application number. 

Providing documents

If you need to provide supporting documents, you will be prompted to do so in your application. The required documents will also be listed in your Confirmation of Application, which you can download when you complete your application. 

Provide any required documents as soon as possible after applying to make sure there is time for them to be assessed before offers are made.

Some course-specific documents, such as a personal statement, CV, questionnaire or portfolio, must be uploaded as PDFs through your application

Other documents, such as qualification transcripts, can be either uploaded as PDFs via your application or posted or delivered to UAC. If you post or deliver these documents, make sure you download and include the document cover sheet that will be generated when you complete your application. We do not recommend you send original documents to UAC. Send good quality copies or bring your original documents to UAC between 8.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday and we will copy them.

Updating your contact details

UAC needs your correct contact details so that you can receive important information from us or the institutions. Access the ‘Personal details’ section of your application to change your contact details, or write to UAC quoting your application number.

  • Make sure you provide a personal email address. Don't use a school email address as it will expire.
  • You cannot change your contact details by phone, fax or email.
  • Don't include changes to your contact details with other correspondence.
  • If you're a current NSW HSC student, you must change your address with both UAC and the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA).
Viewing correspondence

UAC will send you email alert messages when you have correspondence about your application. Add the domain uac.edu.au to your list of safe email contacts to prevent these messages being directed to your junk mail folder. It is your responsibility to check your emails regularly (including your junk emails) for any messages from UAC.

Completing the teaching questionnaire

If you apply for a teaching course at one of the following institutions, you'll need to complete a questionnaire:

  • Australian Catholic University 
  • Charles Sturt University 
  • Southern Cross University
  • University of New England
  • University of Sydney 
  • University of Technology Sydney 
  • University of Wollongong

You can access the questions after you submit your initial application: use the 'Enter or review your responses' link under 'Things to do'. Otherwise, you can log back in to your application at any time and select 'Enter or review your responses'. 

There are four questions about your motivation and suitability for teaching. You must answer all four questions to be considered for selection to the course. Your answers will be valid for all teaching preferences to the above institutions.

Here are prompts to help you frame your responses.       

  1. Tell us what has inspired you to become a teacher and tell us why you think teaching is a good career choice for you.     
    Describe who and what has inspired you to become a teacher and describe the types of skills and abilities you will bring to teaching.
        
     
  2. Describe one or two leadership, community and/or learning and development activities that you have engaged in.   
    Describe how these leadership, community and/or learning and development activities demonstrate your conscientiousness and coping strategies when you are faced with challenges.    
          
  3. Describe how you manage your time when you are both planning and coordinating activities in your personal schedule.       
    Provide examples of how you have put both your planning and coordinating skills to use.   
           
  4. Tell us about one or two times where you have utilised your problem-solving skills to achieve an outcome.
    Explain what you learned, regardless of whether the outcome you achieved was positive or undesirable.
Tracking the progress of your application

You can check whether UAC has received your results, finalised the assessment of your qualifications and found any issues preventing you from receiving an offer to any of your preferences. Once UAC has assessed your application, a short statement will appear under each of your qualifications and preferences. If there are no statements under your qualifications your application is still in the queue waiting to be assessed. If individual qualifications have no statements, those qualifications have not yet been processed. If you require more detailed explanations of these statements, you will be able to view qualification status explanations and course preference status explanations.

Changing your UAC PIN

We recommend that you log in to your application and change your UAC PIN after you've applied. Keep your UAC PIN in a safe and secure place and don't give it to anyone else.

Downloading your Confirmation of Application

This will summarise your application and include your document cover sheet if supporting documents are required.

Additional selection criteria

Use the course search to check if any of your chosen courses have additional selection criteria. In addition to completing your UAC application, you may need to provide a personal statement, submit a portfolio of work, or attend an audition, interview or test.
