Offers are sent from the University during the afternoon of each offer round. They include a link to our ‘Get started at Melbourne’ website, which provides advice about how to accept your offer and enrol.

If you do not receive an offer in the June round or in July round 1, it may be because we have not yet received your Semester 1, 2021 results for consideration. If you still have results pending, you’ll need to wait until July round 2 for an outcome. This timing applies to all current tertiary students, including current University of Melbourne students who are applying for an internal transfer.

What does study at UniMelb look like in 2021?

There are three delivery modes for your subjects:

  • Dual-Delivery: blend of online and on-campus delivery; all students can enrol in these subjects
  • Online: delivered solely online with no on-campus or in-person activity; all students can enrol in these subjects
  • Campus-based (in person): these subjects have a requirement for campus-based or in-person activities; only students who can attend campus can enrol in these subjects.

You can find the delivery mode for your subjects in the subject listing of the Handbook which is the source of truth for your course and subject information. You’ll need to meet the participation and attendance requirements of your classes set out in the subject entry in the Handbook.
