The following courses will not be opened for further offers:

VIC: B Midwifery in Melbourne

QLD: B Midwifery

PLEASE NOTE:

Bachelor of Paramedicine in North Sydney: There are 30 offers being made to UAC applicants for this course. In their offer letters, these applicants advised to respond to their offer within 7 days, after which their offer will be lapsed. The deadline to respond will be COB Friday 27 January.

This will allow us to track enrolment and possibly make further offers.

Bachelor of Physiotherapy in Queensland:

ACU has experienced a significant increase in the number of first preferences (32.8%) in 2017 for Physiotherapy compared to 2016.  As a result we have made a total of 105 offers to date through QTAC for the Bachelor of Physiotherapy for a limited number of places.

Limited availability of Physio placements means we have to be very strict with the number of offers made into this course; similar to Midwifery, Nursing and Paramedicine.

Accreditation requirements with the external body means we must be strict in regards to the number of students we accept in these courses.

In addition, there has been a marked improvement in the quality of the applicant pool for this course hence some people with high scores have not been successful in gaining an offer to date.

Acceptances of offers continue to be monitored and further offers will be made in upcoming offer rounds.

COURSES OPENed DIRECT - VTAC Undergraduate, VTAC Graduate Entry Teaching, NSW Business and Law courses (Law graduate entry and dual degrees)

Following the opening of Graduate Entry Teaching courses in Victoria, direct applications have now opened for VTAC undergraduate courses for Semester 1, 2017 entry.  Applications have been opened as VTAC is no longer accepting new applications from prospective students.

Applicants who have already applied through VTAC cannot also apply direct.  Any alterations to their current application must be done through change of preference through VTAC.

Competitive courses will NOT be offered via Direct, therefore the following courses will only be available to existing VTAC applicants that have paid their application fee.

Courses NOT on offer (via direct) in Victoria are:

  • Bachelor of Nursing - Melbourne
  • Bachelor of Midwifery - Melbourne
  • Bachelor of Paramedicine - Melbourne
  • Bachelor of Occupational Therapy - Melbourne
  • Bachelor of Speech Pathology - Melbourne
  • Bachelor of Nursing/ Bachelor of Paramedicine – Ballarat
  • Bachelor of Physiotherapy (NEW) - Ballarat

Please note that outcomes will not be sent out until the VTAC main offer round (January 11th for GET courses and January 18th for UG) – offers will be released progressively from these dates.

Admissions have also opened direct applications for the Faculty of Law and Business in NSW for NON-SCHOOL LEAVERS only:

  • Bachelor of Accounting and Finance
  • Bachelor of Business Administration
  • Bachelor of Commerce
  • Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Business Administration
  • Bachelor of Information Technology

TRANSFER PROCESSING

Late transfer requests and transfer reversals are now being attended to.

Any student (other than late or reversals) who is still awaiting an outcome regarding their transfer may be awaiting the outcome of their response to a Show Cause letter or, awaiting a final unit grade.  Admissions cannot finalise a student’s transfer whilst a show cause sits against the student’s record.  Schedule 1 courses, required students to complete 80CP of study in their current program and so final grades must be determined, before an outcome can be made.

Any late requests for transfer must to be submitted via email to admissions@acu.edu.au with supporting reason for the late submission from the relevant Head of School.

REMINDER – ADMISSIONS WEEKLY TEAM MEETINGS

Please note that Admissions will hold their next fortnightly team meeting from 10:30 to 11:00 am on Wednesday 15 February 2017. Anyone trying to contact us during this time will need to leave a message and we will reply as soon as possible.
