How and when to apply

The online application takes around 30 minutes to complete.

You can only submit one application to UAC Undergraduate. If you change your mind about the courses you are applying for, you can change your preferences by logging in to your application.

Before you apply, make sure you have an up-to-date browser and that you can access your application – remember to do this well before closing dates.

How to apply

To complete the application you'll need:

  • your personal details (name, address, email address, telephone number)
    Make sure the name you enter on your application matches the name on your official ID (birth certificate, citizenship documents, passport). You'll need your ID when you enrol and there may be problems if the name on your ID doesn't match your offer letter. Also ensure your email address is correct and don't use a school or shared email address. After you apply you'll need to check your email regularly for updates on your application.
  • details of your studies and qualifications
    These include completed secondary studies such as an Australian Year 12 qualification, and both complete and incomplete certificate, diploma and degree studies. You'll need to declare all your studies, even if you've applied through UAC before.
  • your school student number (if you're a 2017 Year 12 student) and your UAC PIN
    A nine-digit UAC application number will be generated after you input your personal details.
  • a list of your chosen course codes
    Check the course search for exact closing dates. If a course is listed as closed you won't be able to add it to your preferences. You can choose up to five courses.
  • a credit card (Mastercard or Visa) or PayPal account to pay for your application
    2017 Year 12 students can also commit to pay using BPAY or Post Billpay (in Australia only). All fees paid to UAC in connection with your application are not refundable under any circumstances except as required by law.

Be aware that you'll need to accept a declaration at the end of your application.

To continue an application you've already started, go to the application login page and enter your UAC application number and UAC PIN under 'Manage your application'.

After you apply you can manage and track your application by logging in to your application. Log in regularly to check for correspondence from UAC.
