Didn't receive an offer?

Why didn't I receive an offer?

If you didn't receive an offer it will be because your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) was not high enough for any of the programs you applied for at ANU.

ANU considers your ATAR (or equivalent) as well as any other tertiary studies that you may have undertaken.

What do I do?

First, don't worry. There are plenty of pathways designed to take you where you want to go.

Take a moment to do some research. If you missed out in the first round of UAC offers, you can rearrange your preferences to be considered for a degree that your ATAR qualifies for later rounds. You are welcome to contact Admissions for advice and help you with your preferences.

You might also like to look at some of our pathway degrees as a way into an ANU degree. These programs have been designed to give you the best possible start to continuing your higher education. ANU offers Diplomas and Associate Degrees to get you straight into university studies without missing a beat. You can list these preferences on your UAC application for first round offers, or you can add these preferences later if you miss out on your first preference.

Unsuccessful applications cannot be reconsidered, but you can improve your chances of success with any future applications by obtaining a qualification from another institution, exploring other pathways such as bridging courses or by applying for special consideration.

You should also know that ANU does not count previous applications against you when reapplying. Every application is considered on its own merit, so we will welcome a new application from you in the future.

Please feel free to get in touch with the Admissions Office to discuss your options.
