Authorising someone to act on your behalf

Your application and all the information within it is confidential. For privacy reasons, we cannot discuss information relating to your application with anyone but you.

If you wish, you can authorise another person to act on your behalf and speak to UAC about your application. To authorise someone to act on your behalf, select this option when you first apply. If you have already applied, you can submit a letter of authority to UAC.

The letter of authority must include:

  • your UAC application number
  • the printed full name and signature of the person who will be acting on your behalf
  • your printed full name and signature
  • your contact telephone number and email address.

Your authorisation only applies to the UAC application process. It does not authorise someone to accept an offer on your behalf. For details on how to authorise someone to accept an offer on your behalf, contact the relevant institution.
