Year 12 offers are out: what to do next

11 Jan 2024

Congratulations to the thousands of hopeful university applicants who have received an offer to study at one of UAC’s participating institutions in 2024.

Depending on your situation, here's what to do next:

Got an offer to your number 1 course

That's great! Go ahead and accept it and follow the uni's instructions for enrolment.

Got an offer but it's not to your preferred course
  • Accept the offer.
  • Move the offered course to the bottom of your preference list (or remove it altogether).
  • Ask the institution if there are still vacancies for your preferred course and lock in your preferences for February Round 1 offers by 11.59pm on Thursday 1 February.

If you get an offer to your preferred course in February Round 1, you can:

  • accept the new offer
  • withdraw your acceptance of the first offer (this will free up your place in the course for someone else).

Changing your preferences after you receive an offer

Note that not all institutions make offers in every round: check institutions participating in each offer round.

Haven't received any offers yet
  • Reassess your preferences. Are they courses for which your ATAR should meet the lowest required selection rank? Check the selection ranks required to receive an offer to each course in January Round 1. Make sure you include one course that had a lowest selection rank that matches (or is less than) your ATAR.
  • Consider including a diploma course in your preference list. They usually require a lower selection rank than bachelor degrees in the same subject area and, if you do well in your first year, you can often transfer to the second year of the related bachelor degree.
  • Ask the institutions if there are still vacancies for your preferred courses.
  • Lock in your preferences for February Round 1 offers by 11.59pm on Thursday 1 February.
  • In your application, make sure you have selected 'Yes' to the question asking you if you'd like to receive information about alternative study options. This will allow institutions to contact you about other courses.
Haven't applied for any courses yet

It’s not too late, but only a few courses will still have vacancies.

Before you apply, check with the relevant institutions to make sure there are still places in the courses that interest you.

Applications close at 11.59pm on Friday 2 February.
