All applicants will receive a letter in the mail.
The University of Newcastle will make further offers in subsequent UAC rounds this year. However, if applicants receive a Main Round offer, they are strongly urged to accept their offer.
In the Late Round students will automatically be considered for any of the preferences listed higher than the preference offered in the Main Round. If students wish to be considered for other programs they must change their preferences.
If applicants want to change or reorder their preferences, they should first check that the program they want to change to has vacancies (this is indicated by a V shown in brackets after the cut-off in the newspaper). Applicants should ensure they are eligible for any new programs they list in their preferences. Vacancies may exist in programs other than those specified with a (V), but only if Main Round offers are not accepted.
Preference changes to be considered in the Late Round will be accepted by UAC until midnight Monday 22 January 2007. Late Round offers will be released by UAC on Wednesday 31 January 2007.
Late applications and preference changes to be considered for the Final Round will be accepted by UAC until Thursday 1 February 2007. Final Round offers will be released by UAC on Wednesday 7 February 2007.
Applicants who wish to accept or defer their offer of place at the University of Newcastle must follow the instructions sent with their offer.
