What if I haven’t met the prerequisite subjects for a course?

If you haven’t studied the prerequisite subjects needed for a particular course (or you don’t achieve the minimum study score), consider studying a pathway course which could allow you to transfer across to your preferred course at a later date.

Can I defer my university offer and study later on?

Some students decide to defer their university offer in order to take time off, usually to work and travel. While it’s possible to defer entry into most La Trobe courses, there are some exceptions. If you’re planning to take six months or a year off from study, you should check that your preferred course will give you the option. See How to defer your offer.

I didn’t get the ATAR for the course I want. Should I remove it from my preference list?

You should generally aim to leave your dream course at the top of your list, even if you don’t think you’ll get a place. The ATARs published in the course guides are the Clearly-In ATARs from the previous year and, while helpful as a guide, may change from year to year. We recommend using as many of your preferences as you can to ensure all options leading to your preferred course remain open.

Can I change courses I applied for?

After ATARs are released you’ll have the opportunity to log into VTAC/UAC to change your list of course preferences. During this time you can add, delete or reorder your preferences. This is your chance to ensure your dream course is at the top of your list while also including some pathway options.
