Offers and enrolments

Undergraduate 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.

Accepting your offer

If the offer is conditional, you'll need to meet the conditions of your offer before accepting it. If you have been sent an unconditional offer, you can choose to accept it immediately.

To accept your offer, follow the instructions in your offer email. You'll need to provide your tuition fee deposit and Overseas Student Health Cover payment. You'll then receive a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from the University. You'll need your CoE to apply for a student visa.

If your offer is unsuccessful

If you don't receive an offer, it means that you have not met the minimum entry standards or selection rank required.  If you're nor happy with the outcome, you can appeal the decision. You can also study additional courses such as foundation programs to satisfy subject prerequisites and increase your chances of getting into a degree in the future.
