Receiving your offer

You'll need your UAC application number and PIN to access your offers.

Offers are released in a secure area of UAC's website and on the My UAC app from 7.30am on each offer round date. Once offers have been released, you can click on 'Check your offers' and log in with your UAC application number and UAC PIN.

We'll also send you an alert email instructing you to log in to your application and check your correspondence, so it is important that we have your correct email address. This can be updated at any time via your application. You should view this correspondence as it may include additional information relating to your offer.

One offer per offer round

You can receive only one offer in each offer round. That offer will be to the highest preference for which you are eligible and competitive enough.

For example, if you’re eligible and competitive enough for the first preference you’ve listed, you’ll be made an offer to that course only. If you're not made an offer to your first preference, but are eligible and competitive enough for your second preference, you’ll be made an offer to your second preference.

When to change your course preferences

If you receive an offer to your first preference in one offer round, you won’t be considered for your lower preferences in subsequent offer rounds unless you change your preferences.

If you’d like to be considered for other courses:

  • accept the offer to your first preference
  • log in to your application or the My UAC app and remove your first preference from your list of preferences
  • put your new preferred course as your first preference before the next offer round.

If you receive an offer to a lower preference in an offer round, you'll automatically be considered for your higher preferences in subsequent rounds. But if you’d like to be considered for other courses, you need to remove the course you’ve been offered, and any other courses you’re no longer interested in, from your list of preferences.

For example, let’s say you have the following five courses listed as preferences and you receive an offer to your second preference:

Preferences
1 B Life Science
2 B Animal Science
3 B Science (Physics)
4 B Human Sciences
5 B Natural Science (Animal Science)

First, you should accept your offer to B Animal Science.

If you leave your preferences as they are, then in subsequent rounds you will only be considered for your first preference, B Life Science.

If you want to be considered for courses other than B Life Science, you can change your preferences in any way you like – even add new courses to your list. Just make sure you have a realistic chance of meeting the cut-off and can satisfy any additional course requirements.

Say you change your preferences to the following:

Preferences
1 B Science (Physics)
2 B Science (Flexible)
3 B Biotechnology
4 B Human Sciences
5 B Teaching/B Science

You’ll notice that B Animal Science has been removed from the list. As long as you’ve accepted your offer to this course, you won’t lose your place. If you now receive an offer to a course in your new list, you can decide whether to accept it and withdraw from B Animal Science or not accept the new offer and keep your place in B Animal Science.

If you reject an offer or let it lapse and then change your mind, you’ll need to speak with the institution’s admissions office, as only the institution can reinstate the offer.
