Just received your ATAR? If you have a question about programs, changing your preference or study pathways, Macleay is here to help.
Take a look at our Change of Preference tips below and please reach out to us if you have any questions. Give us a call on 1300 939 888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or assistance.
1. Order is important
Aim high. List your most desired course FIRST and the remaining in the order that you wish to study them, NOT the order that you think you will get in. You will only receive one offer per round – the highest preference that you are eligible for.
2. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it
If you’re happy with your preferences then you DON’T need to change them. ATAR higher than expected? Change of Preference may not be required.
3. Options, Options, Options
ATAR lower than anticipated? Relax, we’ve got you. Remember there are always alternative options – like our diploma pathways program (that doesn’t require an ATAR). Enrol in a diploma program and upon successful completion you can progress into the final 12 months of the bachelor’s degree. Feel better? For more details visit macleay.edu.au/pathways.
4. Communication is key
If you have missed out on an offer to study in 2021 or still considering your options, it is not too late to enrol in one of our programs for Trimester 1, 2021. There are lots of options to fast-track you into your dream career sooner, rather than later.
If you didn’t get the ATAR score you'd hoped for, don't panic.
Our bachelor courses require successful completion of Year 12, plus relevant pre-requisite subjects. But the great news is that no ATAR is required.
Our diploma courses require successful completion of Year 12 only.

Have a read below - we’ll take you through key dates and some tips and frequently asked questions to get you on track during this Change of Preference period.
The Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) is responsible for processing your application for Higher Education courses and supplying it to the institution that you have nominated. The institution then considers your application and offers you a place based on the selection criteria for your course.
The Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) is the central office that receives and processes applications for admission to most undergraduate degrees, advanced diploma and diploma courses at participating tertiary institutions in NSW and the ACT.
If you have not paid your VTAC application-processing fee in full, you will be unable to change your preferences.
