How to accept or defer your offer

Conditional Offers: Conditional admission and/or scholarship offers cannot be accepted through Accept Online. Outstanding documentation must be provided prior to a full offer being issued.

Sponsored applicants: Sponsored applicants must accept their offer by completing and emailing the admission offer reply forms and sponsorship documents as per their offer letter.


Unconditional Offers - Accept Online

Accepting online is a 2 part-process

Part I: Accept or defer your offer of admission and scholarship (if applicable) in Accept Online to ensure your place in the program. As part of this process, unless accepting an unconditional UNSW tuition paying scholarship, international applicants will be required to pay a tuition fee deposit.

Part II: Confirm your personal details, complete the Financial and Student Declaration sections. International candidates must only complete Part II after the student visa is granted.

Acceptance deadlines and procedures vary.



Scholarship recipients must accept within 2 weeks of receiving their unconditional offers, admission only recipients must accept within 1 month of receiving the unconditional offer.

If you do not accept or defer by the deadline date your offer may lapse.
