Statistics

These statistics show the outcomes of tertiary applications over the last two years, and can be used to identify trends in applications.

Definitions

General

Total offers

The total number of offers made in all offer rounds including multiple offers for the one applicant.

Final offers

The final number of applicants per semester who received an offer.

Offer round type

All courses must have a designated major offer round when all applicants for that course are considered. Early offers can be made before the major round to highly qualified applicants in their highest eligible preference only.

For the majority of courses in semester 1, the January offer round is the major offer round. The February offer round is a top up round but is classified in these statistics as a major round. In the same way, the two offer rounds in June are classified in these statistics as a major offer round for semester 2 courses.

After these rounds some institutions still have vacancies and QTAC makes top up offers classified as late offers in these statistics.

The number of applicants enrolled in their offered course by the census date, as reported by the institution.
