What do students need to do now?
Students can access their results from 9pm tonight at the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) website, http://www.uac.edu.au; and the UAC InfoLine on 1900 957 500; or they can read the list of offers on Thursday 1 February 2007, in The Sydney Morning Herald or The Daily Telegraph, with subsets in The Herald and The Canberra Times. Successful applicants will receive a letter in the mail from UAC from Thursday 1 February 2007 (unsuccessful applicants will not receive a letter unless they applied after the Main Round on 17 January 2007).
The University of Newcastle may make limited further offers in the final UAC round this year, where vacancies exist. However, if applicants receive a Late Round offer, they are strongly urged to accept their offer.
In the Final Round students will automatically be considered for any of the preferences listed higher than the preference offered in the Main and Late Rounds. If students wish to be considered for other programs they must change their preferences.
Late applications and preference changes to be considered for the Final Round will be accepted by UAC until midnight on 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 a place at the University of Newcastle must follow the instructions sent with their offer.
