NSW main round university offers 2016

Applications down but offers up ever so slightly

20 January 2016

………………………………………………………………………………………………………

More than 44,000 domestic university applicants have received a Main Round offer for undergraduate study at a NSW university in 2016.

………………………………………………………………………………………….……

 

UACThe University Admission Centre’s (UAC) participating institutions have made 44,344 Main Round offers, a decrease of 2,159 (about 5%) on last year but the total number of offers made this year is up on last year.

UAC Director of Information Services Kim Paino said the Main Round is still UAC’s largest offer round, and, even though there are less offers made in the Main Round than in previous years, universities are making more offers overall.

‘In the last few years many institutions have increased the number of offers they make in the earlier rounds, which of course means there are less made in the Main Round,’ Ms Paino said. ‘The trend has continued this year, with lots of early offers being made. This means that many of our applicants will already have an offer, but still be waiting to see what might come through for them tonight.’

UAC has received 82,597 domestic applications so far, a 4 % decrease on last year – at the same time last year there were 86,035 domestic applications.

Universities have made 76,789 offers in total to date this year, including offers from earlier rounds, an increase of 454 offers on the same time last year (when 76,335 offers had been made).

There are several more offer rounds for first semester study, with the next one is on Tuesday 2 February. Applicants have until next Wednesday 27 January to change preferences to be included in that offer round.

For those who still haven’t applied, it’s not too late – applications for first semester study are open until Friday 12 February 2016 – although not all institutions will make offers in later rounds and not all courses will still have places for semester 1 study.
