Offers and preferences
In order to receive an early offer in November, you must have one of the approved Early Offer Guarantee degrees listed as your highest eligible QTAC preference. Ordering your QTAC preferences explains how.
If you meet the requirements, and you list one of the eligible degrees as your highest eligible preference, you will receive your offer from QTAC on Friday 20 November.
For offers received on 20 November, you must respond by 4.00 pm on Friday 27 November 2020.
It's very important that you don’t ignore your early offer as it will lapse if you take no action, and you will not receive any further offers from QTAC.
If you’re unsure about accepting your early offer, we suggest that you conditionally accept, which will allow you to reorder your QTAC preferences and be considered for other offers in December and January when your ATAR or IB Diploma results are known.
Trimester 3 2020 offers cannot be reinstated. Reinstatement of Trimester 1 2021 offers may be possible in limited circumstances. Email email@example.com to request reinstatement.
Yes, you can defer your offer for a maximum of 1 year.

Foundations of Academic Writing
To help you succeed at your studies the Foundations of Academic Writing course introduces you to the distinctive conventions and practices of writing for assessment in your university courses. Students who have completed this course say that it is useful and challenging. It helped them to understand the requirements of academic writing and to improve their own writing.
In Trimester 3, 2020 Foundations of Academic Writing comprises three weeks of intense, self-directed learning activities (offered via online delivery mode) from Monday 30 November 2020 to Friday 18 December 2020, with the final assessment piece due for submission on 24 January 2021, giving you time to prepare, reflect and finalise your best piece of work. Having your first University course completed and being well-prepared for university assessment before the start of the 2021 academic year is a great starting point for success.
