Change of preferences for undergraduate December Round 2 offers close at midnight on Sun 17 Dec. We'll be here over the weekend to answer your phone enquiries.

This year, UAC will release offers to NSW HSC students the week after ATARs are released, in December Round 2 on Thursday 21 December. You'll need your UAC application number and PIN to access your offers.

Interstate Year 12 and IB students

December Round 2 offers will be made to those Year 12 students whose results are available in time for inclusion, primarily NSW HSC and ACT Year 12 students.

Other Australian Year 12 students and IB students whose results are not available in time will not be disadvantaged: their results will be considered in January Round 1 and January Round 2.

Excluded courses

Offers will be made to all courses in December Round 2, except for:

Australian National University

  • B Health Science

Griffith University

  • B Medical Science (MD Prov Entry)
  • B Dental Health Science
  • Some additional programs may only be offered in January. Contact Griffith University for more information.

University of Newcastle

  • B Midwifery

University of Newcastle/University of New England

  • B Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine (Joint Medical Program) (This course must be included in your list of preferences by 30 Nov 2017 and not removed after that date.)

UNSW Sydney

  • B Medical Studies/Doctor of Medicine
  • B Arts/B Medical Studies/Doctor of Medicine

Western Sydney University

  • B Medicine/B Surgery (except for Rural Entry Admission Scheme offers, which will be made in December Round 2)

Offers to these courses will be made in January Round 1 on Friday 12 January and January Round 2 on Wednesday 31 January. Therefore, you will not get an offer in December Round 2 if your preference list includes only these courses.

If you are trying to get an offer in December Round 2, your preference list must include at least one course that is being offered in that round.

Be careful if you decide to remove any of the courses listed above from your preference list, as some institutions may require you to keep the course as a preference until offers are made.

If you are able to remove any of these courses from your preference list for December Round 2, but want them to be considered for January Round 1, make sure you put them back in your preference list by midnight on Wednesday 3 January 2018, which is the deadline for January Round 1 preference changes.

If you receive an offer

If you receive an offer in December Round 2, accept that offer. Then you can change your preferences for consideration in January Round 1. If you receive an offer in January Round 1 to a course that you prefer, you can then accept that offer and withdraw from the previous offer.
