Interviews and auditions
The University reserves the right to interview or audition any applicant prior to selection or to conduct other special selection processes in some cases.
Please see our Key Dates for Admission page for information about offer release dates.
If you have been successful, you will receive an offer for the course highest on your list of preferences for which you have met the selection requirements and for which a place is available.
In cases where undergraduate applicants do not receive an offer in the course(s) of their choice, they will be made an offer in an alternative course of study.
An offer into a quota-restricted course may, however, still be possible if late places become available. In other words, it may still be possible for you to receive an offer after having previously been advised otherwise.
Acceptance of offers
You must receive an offer of a place before you can accept and subsequently enrol. If your application is successful you will be sent a letter of offer along with an acceptance form. Online applicants can accept their offer through the eApplications website.
Applicants wishing to accept an offer of a place in a quota-restricted course must do so by the date specified in their letter of offer, otherwise the offer will automatically lapse and their place will be re-offered to other applicants.
All applicants are encouraged to accept their offer as early as possible.
Ready for Uni
These resources are designed to help you to understand your offer, how to manage your enrolment and what else you need to do to prepare for commencement of study.
When you accept your offer you will see a link to Ready for Uni. If your course has set units we will give you links to the website; if your course requires you to choose most units we will link you to the booking page for on-campus workshop.
For further information about Ready for Uni please go to http://www.utas.edu.au/enrol/readyforuni/.
If your circumstances have changed since your application and you are not intending to accept an offer, please advise UTAS by contacting the Student Centre on 1300 361 928 or by emailing Admissions@utas.edu.au.
If you have received an offer of a place and wish to delay commencing your undergraduate course until 2014, you may be eligible to apply for a deferral.
Deferrals will only be granted to students who meet one of the following criteria:
- an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) of at least 75; or
- a completed International Baccalaureate Diploma with a score of at least 26; or
- a University Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 5.
Deferrals are not available in all courses and are strictly limited in some others. The Faculty of Health Science and the Conservatorium of Music have restrictions on the availability and/or number of deferrals. Students who have received an offer of a place in a course within either of these areas, should contact their Faculty or School. Deferrals are not available to Bachelor of Nursing applicants.
Applicants for the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery can find the deferral policy on the School of Medicine website: http://www.utas.edu.au/medicine/quick-links/policies
An approved deferral means that you are guaranteed a place in the course in the following year and you do not need to reapply for entry, we will contact you prior to your commencement.
If you are not eligible for a deferral, there are still many options open to you, including:
- you may be able to enrol part-time;
- you may be able to commence in second semester;
- discuss your study options with Faculty or transition staff.
