MULTIPLE OFFERS

If a student has received more than one offer to ACU via QTAC, UAC or VTAC, their most recent offer will be considered to be their preferred option.

If the student would rather accept an earlier offer, they must advise the Admissions Section immediately using the online Preferred Course Notification form.

EDUCATION CERTIFICATE AND DIPLOMA STUDENTS

Offers are being made now for non-award education pathway courses.

A considerable number of applicants have applied for the following education pathway courses:

  • Certificate of Education Studies – is the ACU pathway to the B Education (Early Childhood and Primary)
  • Certificate of Liberal Studies – is the ACU pathway to the B Education (Primary) and/or B Teaching/B Arts

Unsuccessful applicants have been advised that they unfortunately are ineligible for the course, mainly due to having an ATAR lower than 49.5, the minimum required for these courses.
