Year 12 – Change your preferences even after you’ve accepted an offer

Say what? Yes it’s true – even if you received an offer in the main round, you can still change your preferences.

(If you get an offer, it’s probably always best to accept it. That way, if you don’t receive an offer in later rounds, you still have that option to fall back on).

For example:

  • you receive an offer in main rounds for your first preference but have changed your mind about the course you want
  • accept your offer
  • reorder your preferences before the cut-off date for the next round, list the course you’d like to receive an offer for in first place
  • wait to see what offers you get in the next round
  • accept your new offer
  • withdraw your enrolment from the first institution

Important Note: Make sure that you withdraw your enrolment for any offers that you no longer want, before the census date (check with the uni if the information isn’t in your offer email), otherwise you could end up paying two lots of fees.




Change of Preferences Closes for next round of offers round
