This intake, 1,503 EAP applications were submitted and we received responses from referees for 1,444 of these.

To date, 1,063 offers have been made to successful applicants. 209 applicants have been advised that their EAP application was unfortunately, unsuccessful. The remaining 170 applicants achieved excellent EAP scores, however Admissions were unable to offer them their first preference as their chosen course had quota limits. These applicants have been contacted and encouraged to nominate an alternative course for study in 2016.

All email enquiries regarding EAP should be directed to eap.admin@acu.edu.au.

Offers for Semester 1, 2016 - ENROLMENT OPEN

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

Student 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).

Admissions Team Up with AskACU

The Admissions Team are excited to be working with AskACU on a joint call campaign aimed at improving the conversion of offers to enrolment and increasing the number of submitted applications for Semester 1, 2016.

Admissions are providing regular updates to the AskACU Call Campaign team who are making direct contact with students and applicants to encourage them to accept their offer or complete/submit their application.

The campaign aims to:

  • increase the conversion rates of offers to enrolment
  • decrease the number of incomplete/not submitted applications
  • obtain direct user feedback on any elements of the applications/enrolment process that are causing concern

Keep an eye on this space for the results!!!!!
