Change of Preference


What’s next?

What's next?

Accept your offer

If you’ve received an offer, congratulations and welcome to Monash! The next step is to accept your offer.

Defer your offer

If you choose to defer your offer, you are guaranteed your place but are choosing to delay starting. You must defer your offer by the offer lapse date in your offer letter.

Didn’t receive an offer?

Check out the range of entry options available to help you begin your studies at Monash.

Want a different offer?

Don’t panic if you haven’t received the Monash offer you were hoping for. You may still be eligible for future offers.

If you received an offer, you will still be automatically considered for higher preferences in later offer rounds.

If you have changed your mind and want to reorder your preferences, add new courses to your preference list or be considered for a course listed lower than an offer already received, you can change your preferences throughout January and February.

If you didn't receive an offer you will still be considered for course preferences in future rounds.

Not all courses can be added during Change of Preference, so check the course requirements carefully.

Future rounds – no guarantees

Even if you are eligible, there are no guarantees that you’ll receive an offer in subsequent rounds. Monash will only make offers in future rounds if there are places available. Some courses may fill their quotas in round one.

How many offers?

You can receive a maximum of one offer per offer round.

Changing your preferences

You can change your course preferences between offer rounds as many times as you choose. Before adding a preference, always check the selection criteria to ensure you have met all course prerequisites.

Check the VTAC website for change of preference deadlines.

Applying directly

Your dream course may still have capacity and you can apply direct through us. Check for eligible courses.
