New December domestic round 

Receive your Swinburne offer & enrol in your dream course by New Year's Eve

You’d better believe it! We’ll be making early undergraduate course offers in December 2019. We’re doing this because VTAC has added an extra round of offers – giving you an early opportunity to secure the Swinburne course you really want. That means if you receive a December round offer, you can enrol straight away - and have your 2020 class timetable ready before the year is out. Now wouldn’t that be worthy of a big New Year’s celebration?

Didn’t receive a December offer? It’s OK, you’re still in the running. While we’ll be making as many December offers as possible, it’s important to remember that certain courses can only make offers in January. And don’t forget the most important part:

Put the Swinburne course you MOST want to get into HIGHEST on your VTAC preference list – and double-check you’ve ticked off all the entry requirements.

Scholarship courses

Our Bachelor of Business Information Technology (Professional), Bachelor of Accounting and Business Information Technology (Professional) are both scholarship courses which require an additional interview as part of the application process.

So, if you applied for these courses but did not attend an interview before the December round, you won’t receive an offer in December. But you’ll definitely be considered for future offer rounds.

You received an offer

Congratulations! It’s a good idea to accept your offer before the next offer round. That way, you secure your place and avoid the risk of it being given to another applicant. You still have the freedom to explore other course options through further VTAC offer rounds.

You missed out on an offer

Take a deep breath, there are other paths that lead to Swinburne. You can:

  • Change your preferences through VTAC for future offer rounds.
  • Seek a supplementary offer 
  • Talk to Swinburne about your options 

Not receiving an offer means it’s worth considering other courses not currently on your preference list. This may include pursuing an alternative pathway to the course you want via another course.

Supplementary offers 

If you don’t receive an offer in the December or January rounds, you can apply for a supplementary offer. You’ll need to give VTAC permission to release your application to all courses with vacancies. VTAC processes supplementary offers weekly throughout February and if you’re successful, you’ll be advised via your VTAC account.

Learn more about supplementary offers.

Accepting & enrolling

We can’t wait for you to join us at Swinburne. First things first, though - you need to accept your offer and enrol online.
