What happens when you receive a postgrad offer?
So, you’ve applied for a postgraduate degree and your application was successful. Congratulations! Here’s what you need to know once you’ve received an offer.
Step 1: Read your offer
If you applied directly to ACU, you will receive an offer email which includes all the information you need to complete the enrolment process. An offer will always be in the form of written notice and should outline what course the offer is for and on which campus. Check your spam/junk folder if you can’t find the email in your inbox.
Step 2: Accept your offer and enrol
After you’ve received an offer, you need to accept it by enrolling in your course. These steps will be clearly outlined in your offer email. At ACU, you’ll enrol through our Student Portal and follow a series of guided steps to confirm important details and complete your enrolment.
You should also look for your Course Enrolment Guide (which is accessible via Student Connect and the Student Portal). It contains key information such as your course map, electives, and subject/unit information. This will help to explain what subjects/units you’ll be studying and when.
Step 3: Creating your timetable
So you’ve enrolled in units – but you still need to select the times you will attend lectures and tutorials.
There are set dates when timetables ‘open’ and you can allocate yourself to classes. At ACU, you’ll select your timetable using a program called Tutorial Direct. Unless there are very special circumstances, it’s first in, first served – and obviously certain class times fill up faster than others. So make sure you note down the key dates for allocating your classes.
If there are mitigating circumstances as to why you cannot attend particular class times, you can contact the lecturer in charge of that unit to request special consideration. If granted, you may be allocated to your requested time slot.
