How long do you have to accept a uni offer?

When you receive an offer from a university, you’ll be sent a letter or email containing information outlining how to accept your offer, and how long you have. Pay close attention to this official information and keep it handy.

How to accept a uni offer

How you will accept your uni offer depends on the university you’ve applied to study with, and whether you applied through an admissions centre or through Open Universities Australia.

Accepting an offer through your state or territory’s admissions centre

Accept your offer and enrol via the website of the university making the offer to you. Details of how to do so will be included in your letter of offer—sent by the university via post or email.

Accepting an offer through Open Universities Australia

You’ll receive an email confirming your enrolment from Open Universities Australia and further details from the university you’ll be studying with. 

How to defer a uni offer

Deferring means placing a “hold” on the course you’ve been offered until the following year. 

Many students choose this path after Year 12 as it allows them to travel or work (or both!) for 12 months, knowing they have firm study plans in place for the future.  

Whether you’re able to defer your uni offer depends on the course you’re enrolling in and the university you’re applying to study with. We recommend contacting your university directly via phone upon receiving your offer.

“Help! I still have questions about uni offers!”

We recommend speaking with the admissions centre for your state or territory. You can find their contact details via the links in the table above.
