How to accept your offer

Your offer into a course at Murdoch will arrive by snail mail (old fashioned post, you know, with an envelope and a stamp?) so remember to check the letterbox.

The letter will contain some important info such as your student number, which you will need to begin the process of accepting your offer, so hold onto it!

It’s important to be around at this time so you can do this yourself. If you are away you can still accept your offer from anywhere in the world where there is internet.

It’s your future so it’s better that you are in control of what’s happening instead of leaving it to someone else!

To accept, defer or reject your offer go to and use the student number in your letter to get into the system.

From here it will guide you through and you will pretty much be set up to start enrolling in units, signing up for tutes and lectures and planning your timetable! Exciting!!

Not sure you want to accept the Offer?
If you have been made an offer but are unsure if it’s what you really want to do, that’s ok!

It can be pretty stressful having to make all these decisions and finishing high school is a time when you come to a major fork in the road.

This can be scary but it is also a brilliant time in your life when you can make choices, take your own path and explore so many possibilities. Yeah, you might start travelling down one road only to find that maybe you want to try another way. No matter. Turn left at the roundabout or cross over the bridge and take yourself on an entirely new journey.

The point is don’t be afraid to make mistakes, because you can turn things around and you will learn by doing, no matter what. If it feels right, if it makes you excited, if you are interested in exploring it and giving it your best shot then go for it!

You can always come and chat to our Student Advisors – they help students all the time figure out their options and sometimes it’s just good to talk it through with someone who knows exactly what you are going through.

If you didn’t get your first preference you can wait for second round offers and then decide what to do - our trusty Student Advisors will still be around for chats ;) or if you need time to figure out if this course, or even if uni is right for you then you can defer your offer.

Didn’t get into uni? There are more ways than you think!

We want you to feel GREAT about your future and not receiving an offer doesn’t mean the end of the road for you and your dream course or career! There really, truly are more ways than one to get into uni, here are some of them:
  • Did you know you can do a Murdoch Uni Preparation Course and still be based on our main campus?
  • For some media and arts courses you can submit a portfolio instead of needing your ATAR.
  • Life experience counts! A TAFE or trade certificate can be used to enter uni.
And there are more! Drop in to our Student Centre, most students find talking to us really helps them know all their options.
