I got an offer. What happens next?

After receiving an offer from the University of Melbourne, you must respond to your offer. This means that you either:

I didn't get the course I wanted, what are my other options?

If your application was unsuccessful this time you might consider strengthening it through further study (for example, a year in another tertiary degree) and reapply at a later date. In this case your new application would be assessed using your entire academic record, both tertiary and year 12 results.

To apply for entry in Semester 1 2018 you will need to reapply through VTAC.

I didn't get an offer. Why didn't I get in?

Please refer to the 2017 clearly-in ranks for information about the entry standard required for Year 12 applicants in this intake period. In addition to the ATAR requirement, you must also have satisfied the course prerequisites to receive an offer. For more information about course prerequisites, refer to Course Search.
