Accepting Offers &/or Deferment

After the course selection authorities have considered your application, they will advise VTAC whether they wish to offer you a place in the course. Then VTAC advises you via your VTAC user account of the highest offer on your preference list. In subsequent offer rounds, you will be considered for course preferences higher than the offers you have received. VTAC will again advise you of the highest offer made (if any).

All offers are provisional and are subject to you:

  • meeting eligibility requirements,
  • having provided full and correct information on your VTAC application,
  • attending the enrolment at the date and time specified in your Letter of Offer.

To accept an offer, you must follow the enrolment instructions in your Letter of Offer. You can only enrol/defer one course and you are usually required to attend in person on a specific date and time. Refer to http://www.vtac.edu.au/results-offers/offers.html

Receiving an offer does not confirm your enrolment in the course. To secure your place, you must follow the enrolment instructions in your offer message. In some cases you may be required to attend enrolment in person on a specific date and time.

It is recommended that you accept your first round offer by following the instructions in your letter of offer, even if it is not your most preferred course. Often this can be done online. You will still be eligible for a course higher on your list of preferences in the second and supplementary rounds, although these are few. Approx. 90% of course quotas are filled in the first round so do not rely on later offers.

Enrolment is a totally separate part of the process. Details of when and how to enrol will be provided for you with your offer. Please make sure you follow the procedures outlined. Each University/TAFE has a slightly different system. To confirm your place in the course you must enrol at the correct time and place. Make sure you consult the University/TAFE handbooks before you enrol.

If you do not act it will be assumed that you are not interested and you will forfeit your offer automatically.
