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

If you are eligible, you will receive an offer via UAC on Thursday 7 December. An offer alert 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 your 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 studies and examination. If your offer is made to the Bachelor of Clinical Science, you will be required to complete bridging courses in Mathematics and Chemistry prior to commencement if you have not completed Mathematics SL/HL; Further Mathematics HL; or Chemistry SL/HL.

Can I still get offers in other UAC rounds?

This is an early offer round, so you may still be eligible to receive offers through UAC other rounds. If you want to adjust your preferences for further rounds, follow the standard process to ensure you receive the offers you want. If the offer you receive from Macquarie on 7 December is your dream course, you don’t need to make any changes within UAC, you can accept your offer and enrol straight away.
