DEFERMENT REQUESTS

Over 1,360 deferment requests have been received from students who were made an offer for Semester 1, 2016.

Admissions are processing these requests in the order they are received and students are advised when they submit their request that it will be processed within 10 working days.

To date, we have processed requests received up to 19 February 2016. Currently there are 115 deferment requests in process.

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

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

Admissions are unable to make ANY offers for the Diploma in Educational Studies or Diploma in Liberal Studies to domestic students.

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.
