IB early offers

Want an early Macquarie offer?

Are you completing your International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma studies this year? Would you like to be considered for a Session 1 2019 Macquarie University offer before January?

Interested? Here's what you need to do.

If you’d like to be considered for an early offer from us, just make sure that you list your preferred Macquarie course as your highest eligible UAC preference.

Your predicted IB grades will be retrieved from your school and assessed by UAC.

Offers based on predicted IB grades will be made from UAC November Round 2. Predicted grades will cease to be used for selection when final IB grades are released and available for assessment. Applicants applying for 2019 Session 2 entry will be considered on their final IB grades from January Round 1 onwards.

How will I know if I’ve received an offer?

If you are eligible, you will receive an offer via UAC in November Round 2, December Round 1 or 2. The offer will be sent to the email address that you listed on your UAC application, so you’ll need to ensure your contact details are up to date at all times. If you’ve listed a mobile phone number on your application, then you’ll also receive an SMS from Macquarie.

Why am I receiving an offer now?

We see no reason to make you wait until January for a university offer. We see Predicted IB grades as a good indicator of your ability to succeed at university. This offer to study at Macquarie University is based on your predicted IB grades and how they align to the published entry criteria for your nominated course. If this is your dream course, you can accept your offer and enrol, then relax over the holidays.

Is there any condition attached to this IB early offer?

You are required to complete your current IB study and examination.

Can I still get offers in other UAC rounds?

Predicted IB offers will be made in UAC November Round 2 and December rounds. If you want to be considered for another Macquarie course after receiving an early offer, follow the standard UAC process to change your preference before the close of preference for the coming round. Please note that predicted IB grades will cease to be accepted when final IB results are available.
