Because UAC has several offer rounds in the first half of the year, many Year 12 students ask us if they can receive an offer now.
The short answer is ‘no’: the first UAC offers to Year 12 students will be made to Schools Recommendation Scheme
(SRS) applicants on 11 November 2022. Offers made then are not based on HSC results and ATARs. Instead, they are based on other criteria like Year 11 results and the school’s rating of the student.
Before November, offers are made to applicants who are not in Year 12 this year and already have a qualification UAC can assess. They’re often applying to start a course in Semester 2.
Most UAC offers to Year 12 students are made in late December, after the release of ATARs.
If you’re after an early offer, make sure to apply directly to the university of your choice through their early entry program. You can find a full list of early entry programs, including closing and offer dates, in our Early Entry Guide
All courses available soon
All 2023 courses from UAC’s participating institutions will be available on UAC’s website in early August.
For students who have already applied, this is the time for them to log in to their application and review and update their preferences.
For students who haven’t yet applied the early bird period ends on Friday 30 September
, at which time the processing fee increases. Even if they’re not sure what course they want to study, they should apply now and put in any course as a placeholder until they are ready to decide.
UAC PIN reminder
An email will be sent to Year 12 students who haven’t applied in early August to remind them of their UAC PIN. PINs will be emailed to the address they have registered with BSSS, so they need to ensure that this is a current email address.
To start their UAC application students will need their Year 12 student number (issued through their school) and their UAC PIN. Once they have applied, they can then use their UAC application number and UAC PIN to log in and manage their application.
If students don’t have their UAC PIN email, or are having problems with their PIN, they can read the PIN FAQs
or contact UAC
