- Decline your offer.
Bachelor of Science accepting direct applications
Missed applying through VTAC but interested in studying in 2017? The Bachelor of Science is accepting direct applications until 10 February for Semester 1 entry. Apply online.
If you have applied through VTAC for Semester 1 entry please don’t submit a direct application – you can apply for the Bachelor of Science by changing your VTAC preferences.
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. Some courses will also have a mid-year intake (for entry in Semester 2, 2017) – the Future Students website will have further details available about this by the beginning of May.
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 (noting that some courses, including the Bachelor of Biomedicine, imposed a higher entry standard for Round 2 offers than Round 1). 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.
Why wait to start your degree or change your course?
A number of undergraduate and graduate courses are accepting applications for mid-year entry.
Whether you’ve found a course that’s a better fit, or simply can’t wait to get started at Melbourne, you don’t have to wait with mid-year entry.
And if you’ve already completed some tertiary subjects, whether you’re coming from another university or transferring from another course at Melbourne, you can apply for credit for what you’ve already accomplished.
