Accepting Two Offers?
« on: October 17, 2020, 06:56:58 pm »

Hello, I received two offers from my UAC applications. One from UNSW and one from Univerity of Sydney. I'm still waiting for an offer from VTAC schools. Now the question is: am I allowed to accept both offers? Or do I have to pick one and accept only that one and decline the other? Over here in the States, you generally would not accept both, so I'm just curious if I'm allowed to accept both for now and then withdraw later on.

Hey there dualcitizen :)

First of all, congrats on receiving not one but 2 offers! That is amazing.
From knowledge, you can only accept one offer but you can overlap these offers (i.e. not selecting to decline or accept until all offers come in). If you have your heart set on either UNSW or University of Sydney, do accept your top preference.

Hope this helps

Hey, dualcitizen!

Congratulations on both of your offers! That's an absolutely outstanding achievement. I'm not entirely sure how it works if you are an international student but this is what the UAC says about the number of offers you can have.

"You can only receive one offer in each offer round. If you receive an offer in one round and accept it, and then receive an offer in a later round, you can choose either to:
- keep your previous offer and not accept your new offer, or
- accept your new offer and withdraw from the course you've already accepted."

In short, I'm in agreement with scientificllama that it would be wise to accept the offer you prefer more and if you're unsure, just accept the one you received first and take your time to decide whether you want to take the second one instead  :) Hope that helps and do let us know what you decide to do!
