Receiving an offer to uni through SRS

13 Nov 2018

If you’ve applied for undergraduate study through Schools Recommendation Schemes (SRS), now is a good time to revisit some important points about receiving offers.

Offers will be made via UAC on Thursday 15 November.

If your application is successful, you’ll receive either an unconditional offer or a conditional offer.

If you receive an unconditional offer, congratulations! Go ahead and accept it. If you want to be in the running for another offer in December (based on your ATAR), move the course you’ve been offered down to the bottom of your list of course preferences or remove it entirely. (As long as you have accepted the offer, you can’t lose it.)

If you receive a conditional offer, you still need to meet additional criteria before the institution will make you an unconditional offer in December Round 2 (on 20 December). The institution will tell you how to do this.

You might receive more than one conditional offer on 15 November, but only one of them can become an unconditional offer in December Round 2. In this offer round, like in all rounds, you’ll receive an offer to the course that is highest in your list of preferences and for which you are eligible and competitive enough.

SRS OFFERS IN A NUTSHELL

  • First SRS offers will be made on Thursday 15 November.
  • If you receive an unconditional offer, accept it if you choose to.
  • If you receive a conditional offer, you still need to:
  1. meet the criteria stipulated in the offer
  2. meet all other institution requirements for that course
  3. include the course in your list of preferences by midnight on Sunday 16 December 2018. Make sure the course that you would most like to do is at the top of your list.
  • Further unconditional offers will be made in December Round 2 (20 December) and subsequent rounds.
