What is Change of Preference?
Between August and February, as you complete your studies and sit your exams, there are various periods where you’re able to choose and change the shortlist of uni courses you’d most like to end up in next year – also known as your VTAC preferences.
The window just after your ATAR and Year 12 results are released is a crucial Change of Preference period. This is your window in which to make changes to your eight preferences for the main offer round in January, with the help of unis, course advisers and your school.
Why would you want to change your preferences after you get your results? Great question. You might want to tweak or toggle your preferences because your results were better than expected, or if you didn’t get the results you wanted, or you may find that you just want to change your mind.
This is why, during the Change of Preference period, you’ll have the chance to visit Swinburne, speak with academics, and access advice in relation to courses, pre-requisites and your preferences.
