When do I find out the outcome?

QTAC applications

Before the November offer round, we will update the preference information within your QTAC application to reflect your outcome. You'll be able to check this via QTAC’s application services.

What information will I see on QTAC?

Within your preferences tab you will see one of the following statuses under the satisfied column:

  • Met: You have met the minimum entry requirements to be considered for a place in this course
  • Not met: You have not met the minimum entry requirements to be considered for a place in this course. You may want to review your QTAC course preferences.

Meeting the minimum entry requirements does not guarantee a QTAC offer for this course, as there are usually more eligible applicants than places available in the program. Most offers will be made in the November offer round. Further offers may be made in later offer rounds.
