Graduate coursework study

If your application is successful, you'll receive an offer and an official offer email from the University with instructions about how to accept your offer and enrol in your course online. You can choose to accept, defer or decline your offer.

Accept your offer

Early offers

You may receive an offer immediately after you apply, without having to wait for the normal offer round. To qualify for an early offer, you'll need to have met the additional requirements of early offers, specified by the graduate course you’re applying for.

Next round offers

If you don't receive an early offer, your application will be held until the next offer round for the course and you’ll be considered alongside all other applications.

If your offer is conditional, you'll need to meet the conditions of your offer before accepting it. Once you have the documentation to meet your offer condition you can upload the documentation directly into your application. Instructions on how to upload your documentation can be found here.

If you've been sent an unconditional offer, you can choose to accept it online immediately.

To accept your offer, follow the instructions in your offer email. You can then enrol and start planning your studies with Melbourne.

How to defer your offer

Declining your offer

If you've received an offer for a place at Melbourne and decided not to accept, you'll need to decline your offer. Alternatively, you can choose to defer your offer, if you think you might change your mind later on.

If your offer is unsuccessful

If you don't receive an offer, it means that you have not met the minimum entry standards or scores required.  If you're not happy with the outcome, you can ask for feedback on your application. You can also ask about additional study options to increase your chances of getting into a degree in the future.
