Year 12 Early Offer Program

If you’re graduating from Year 12 in 2021, you can apply now to study at Murdoch using your Year 11 ATAR subject results, or by identifying that you are on a recognised pathway to meet entry to Murdoch, for example through studying a Certificate IV or an enabling program. This means you can be offered a place to your chosen course conditional on you completing Year 12 for ATAR students and successfully completing your pathway if you are a non ATAR student. Please apply only once.

Offers of entry for the 2022 academic year will be issued on a rolling basis from the date of application. For more information, please refer to our frequently asked questions.

Frequently asked questions

  • Who is eligible for the Year 12 Early Offer Program?

    All Year 12 students (from Western Australia and interstate) graduating at the end of 2021 applying for a 2022 undergraduate course entry, including students studying non-ATAR subjects.

    The Year 12 Early Offer Program has been put in place by Murdoch University to enable students to secure a place on their chosen course prior to end of year assessments.

    This applies to all courses except the Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Veterinary Biology and the Bachelor of Nursing. Applications for these courses will need to be made via TISC.

  • When will applications for the Year 12 Early Offer Program close?

    Applications for the Year 12 Early Offer Program will open at 8.00am on Tuesday 30 March, 2021 and will remain open until Thursday 16 December 2021.

  • What is a conditional offer?
    A conditional offer means that there is still something we need you to do before we can allow you to enrol in your course in 2022. For the Year 12 Early Offer Program, if you are an ATAR student we want you to complete Year 12. If you are a non ATAR student, we want you to successfully complete your pathway. 

    This will not only help you prepare for university study, but it will enable you to meet our English language requirements. Once you have uploaded evidence of Year 12 completion, we will be able to give you an unconditional offer, which you can accept. This will allow you to formally enrol in your course and sign up to your classes. A conditional offer will ensure that we save a place for you in your chosen course. 
  • How do I apply using my Year 11 ATAR subject results?

    You will need to submit your course application directly to Murdoch University using the My Admissions application portal available on our website.

    You also need to upload your end of Year 11 subject reports and subject results.

    Offers will be made on a rolling basis from the date of application. Please allow a few weeks for us to process your application.

  • How will Murdoch University assess my Year 11 grades against the minimum required ATAR score?

    If you are applying for a course under the Year 12 Early Offer Program, Murdoch University will use your Year 11 ATAR subject results to create a predicted selection rank.

    Applicants will only be made a conditional offer to their course under the Year 12 Early Offer Program, if their predicted selection rank meets the academic standards usually required for course entry. If your Year 11 score does not meet the entry requirement you may wait for your Year 12 ATAR results or choose to undertake an additional entry process, for example Law Start, an intensive short course to test aptitude towards studying Law.

    For more information about Law Start, and other admission pathways please contact the Meet Murdoch Team at 1300 687 3624 (then select #1).

  • If I score better in my Year 12 ATAR results, can I re-apply for my preferred course?

    Yes. Current Year 12 students can re-apply for courses using their Year 12 ATAR if they wish. There will be instructions in your offer letter on how to change your course preferences.

    We still encourage students to apply using their Year 11 subject results, and your application can be updated if your Year 12 ATAR score is higher.

  • What are my options if I have not studied ATAR subjects?

    We provide many pathways to study at Murdoch University for students who are not completing ATAR subjects. Many of these pathways can be completed during Year 12, such as portfolio entry, Certificate IV, FlexiTrack High and TLC110. Non ATAR students who are on a recognised pathway to university are also invited to apply to receive a conditional offer into their course.

    We also offer flexible post-schooling pathway programs such as OnTrack Sprint, OnTrack and FlexiTrack or our intensive programs like Horizons Summer School or Law Start.

    Please contact the Meet Murdoch Team at 1300 687 3624 (then select #1) to discuss the pathway that is best for you.

  • Does the Year 12 Early Offer Program apply to all Murdoch undergraduate courses?

    The Year 12 Early Offer Program does not apply to the Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Veterinary Biology + Doctor of Veterinary Medicine (DVM) pathway, or the Bachelor of Nursing.

    Prospective students wishing to apply to these courses must fulfil the usual eligibility requirements and follow the standard entry pathway through TISC.

  • When will offers be made?

    Successful applicants under the Year 12 Early Offer Program will receive a conditional offer on a rolling basis from the date of application. If you qualify, you should receive an offer within a couple of weeks of applying.

    If you are not made a conditional offer into your preferred course under the Year 12 Early Offer Program, you may re-apply using your final Year 12 ATAR score provided it meets the course entry requirements.

    If you don’t qualify for entry based on your Year 11 or Year 12 results, we offer flexible post-schooling enabling and pathway programs such as Horizons Summer School, OnTrack Sprint, OnTrack and FlexiTrack.

    Please contact the Meet Murdoch Team at 1300 687 3624 (then select #1) to discuss the pathway that is best for you.

  • What happens if all course spots are taken by the rolling offers?

    Murdoch University’s course intake for 2022 remains the same to provide all applicants with equal opportunity to undertake higher education at Murdoch University.

    Whether you apply to Murdoch University under the Year 12 Early Offer Program or using your final ATAR results, both pathways will be equally considered. You may be offered a spot at Murdoch University as long as you meet the conditions outlined in your offer.

  • Do I need my WACE?

    No, but you will need to complete Year 12 and supply evidence of this (for example, your School Statement of Results, issued toward the end of October, or the Western Australian Statement of Student Achievement, WASSA, issued by SCSA).

    Completion of your WACE is strongly encouraged. The WACE is an important achievement to demonstrate the breadth and depth of learning, and formally recognises your graduation from secondary school. It is important for not only entry to university, but for post school employment. Completing your Year 12 studies and trying your best will be an important foundation and preparation for university level study.

  • Will I still need to apply on TISC, and what can I do about adding or changing preferences?

    You can apply direct to Murdoch from Tuesday 30 March 2021, or via TISC which opens on 19 April 2021. If you’re applying for the Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Veterinary Biology, or the Bachelor of Nursing you will need to apply on TISC.

    You only need to submit one application to Murdoch. Direct applicants to Murdoch can change course preferences at any time (we’ll advise you how to do this in your offer letter).

    The Meet Murdoch team is available from 8.00am-6.00pm each week day to advise and help guide you on a range of course options and pathways into them. Please call 1300 687 3624 (then select #1) to discuss your options.
