Media releases

Securing a spot at uni is still within reach

05 Jan 2018

MISSED out on a uni offer in December? Don’t stress – securing a spot at uni is still well within reach.

The Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) will release further offers next week, in January Round 1 on Friday 12 January. Applicants can check if they have an offer on the My UAC mobile app or on UAC’s website from 7.30am.

UAC General Manager of Marketing and Engagement, Kim Paino, said, ‘many students will be anxiously awaiting this round of offers.

‘We expect thousands of offers will be made, which will be good news for lots of our applicants,’ Ms Paino said. ‘While there are still more offer rounds to come, anyone who receives an offer should accept it so they don’t miss out on the opportunity to study in first semester this year.’ 

When the January Round 1 offers are released, UAC will also release the cut-offs for entry into each course. It’s important for applicants to remember that cut-offs are not ATARs, as they include bonus points, and that many students are admitted under schemes that consider factors other than the ATAR.

Further offers will be made in January Round 2 on Wednesday 31 January. Preferences for that round need to be finalised by midnight on Wednesday 24 January.

For those who haven’t applied, it’s not too late, with applications for first semester study open until midnight on Monday 5 February 2018.
