8. Responding to your offer

If you received an online letter of offer through QTAC, congratulations! Your application to study at UQ was successful.

You can view and respond to through QTAC application services.

Responding to your offer

You have the choice of three response options. Within each, you can accept, reject or defer the offer.

Outright response

  • Accept – You accept the offer and no longer wish to be considered in any further offer rounds.
  • Reject – You reject the offer and no longer wish to be considered in any further offer rounds.
  • Defer – You apply for deferment of the place offered and no longer wish to be considered in any further offer rounds.

If you choose to defer your offer, you will receive an email in March of your first year of deferral to advise you of the enrolment process. Please note you cannot defer a mid-year entry offer.

Conditional response – with no change of preferences

  • Conditionally accept – You accept the offer, but wish to be considered for higher preferences if further offers are made.
  • Conditionally reject – You reject the offer, but wish to be considered for higher preferences if further offers are made.
  • Conditionally defer – You apply for deferment, but wish to be considered for higher preferences if further offers are made.

If you conditionally accept or defer an offer and are subsequently offered a higher preference, you forfeit the right to enrol in the lower preference previously offered.

Conditional response – with change of preference

You can change your preferences for future offer rounds if you wish to be considered for a program you previously listed with lower preference or a program you didn't previously apply for.

Upon making this change, respond to your current offer conditionally, as outlined above.

Didn't get an offer for your UQ preference

If you didn't get an offer, there are a few reasons to consider. These range from entry requirements and unpaid application fees to incorreclty ordered preferences and missed due dates.

If you're unsure why you didn't get an offer, please contact UQ Admissions on (07) 3365 2203 or at admissions@uq.edu.au.
