How can I change my preferences?


You can change your preferences in Application Services.

NOTE: Do not save your preferences until you are sure they are exactly as you want them. The first three times you click the 'save' button are free, but each time after this, you will be charged a changing of preferences fee.

Why can't I change my preferences?

There are two instances in which you can't change your preferences:

1. When the change of preference service is turned off

The change of preference service is turned off prior to large offer rounds, while we prepare to make offers. It's available again once the offers are made. 

2. When you have the wrong computer settings

Currently, you can’t change preferences on a smart phone; you can use a desktop or laptop PC or Mac, or a tablet device. 

Visit technical requirements for more information.

How many courses can I apply for?

You can apply for up to six courses at a time. Listing six preferences helps maximise your chances of getting an offer.

What must I consider when selecting and ordering preferences?

Can I apply for different courses starting in different semesters?

Yes, you can apply for different courses starting in three different semesters on the one application.

NOTE: Year 12 students cannot apply for semester 3 courses.

Can I list the same preference starting in different semesters?

Yes, you can apply for the same course starting in different semesters eg semester 1 and semester 2, 2017. However this will be considered as two preferences.

NOTE: While you can list courses for different semesters, you will maximise your chances of receiving an offer for semester 1 if you only list semester 1 start courses in the first instance. 

How should I order my preferences?


How you order your preferences depends on whether you are doing so before or after receiving an offer. 

Before an offer

Make sure you order your preferences carefully so you don't miss out on what you want to study.

By listing your preferences in the order of 'desired - back-up - pathway' (PDF 603KB) courses, you'll give yourself a better chance of getting into the course you want.

Changing preferences

You can change your preferences both before and after you've been made an offer.

Find out how to change your preferences before receiving an offer (PDF 600.5KB).

Refer to the offers page to find out how to order your preferences after you have received an offer.
