Change of preference - Domestic applications

In most cases, domestic applicants are eligible to change their preferences prior to receiving an offer of admission.

What is change of preference?

Change of preference is an opportunity for you to re-order or add new programs to your list of preferences that ANU will assess for admission. Your preferences are assessed in order from first to fifth, so the program you want to study most should be your first preference, the one you want to study second-most as your second preference, and so on.

Advice for Admission, Scholarship and Accommodation applicants.

You can change your preference until the application deadline. Applications open on 4 March 2020 can close 25 May 2020. Change of preference reopens after conditional offers are released. You can change or add new preferences to your application starting 7 September 2020 until just after your final Year 12 results are released! 

How do I change my preference?

  1. Log into the application portal 
  2. Select the 'Programs' section
  3. Select 'Search for programs' to add a new preference.

You can also re-order your existing preferences in the 'Programs' section.

The order of your preferences is important. Preferences are assessed from first preference (the program you want to study the most) to fifth preference (the program you want to study the least).  You need to make sure you order your preferences to get the best outcome for you, however changing your preferences will impact upon your conditional offer and could impact your scholarship eligibility.
