Offers for Semester 1, 2016 - ENROLMENTS OPEN

Admissions have started making offers to successful applicants for Semester 1, 2016.

AStudent Connect opened for enrolment into 2016 this week which means Admissions are now using an offer template that directs the applicant to the steps to enrol, for instructions for accepting the offer by enrolling into units, deferring commencement or rejecting the offer.

In their offer email, applicants are now first directed to the new Welcome Videos (where they choose the undergraduate/first time study or postgraduate option relevant to their study).

Processing of Commencement of Studies Following Deferment (CD) Forms

Processing of CD forms for students who have indicated their intention to return to study in Semester 1, 2016 will commence on 19 October, 2016.

Prior to processing, students who deferred from offers from Semester 1, 2014 have been emailed to remind them that they need to submit their CD form by 30 November or their deferment will expire and they will need to reapply for admission.

Admissions have also been in contact with students who deferred from either the Bachelor of Human Resource Management or Bachelor of Marketing to advise them that this course has been discontinued and offering them the opportunity to return to study the Bachelor of Commerce instead.
