After you apply

After you apply, check your Confirmation of Application carefully to make sure everything in your application is correct. If you need to change your contact details or course preferences, or add study that you didn't include in the application, you can use Check & Change. For other changes, notify UAC as soon as possible in writing.

Changing your contact details

UAC needs your correct contact details so that you can receive important information from us or the institutions.

Additional selection criteria

Check if any of your chosen courses have additional selection criteria – find the course descriptions through the course search. You may need to provide a personal statement, complete a questionnaire, submit a portfolio of work, or attend an audition, interview or test.

Providing documents

If you do need to provide documents to support your application, your Confirmation of Application package will include a cover sheet titled 'UAC documents' or 'Institution documents to upload'. The cover sheet will provide instructions for submitting the required documents.
