    I got the same ATAR as my friend. We were both interviewed. Why did my friend get an offer but I didn’t?
    Academic performance is not the only element of the admission process and your scores in the interview may have varied. You may also be competing for entry into a different level of the program.

    My friend got in last year and his ATAR was lower than mine?
    That may very well be the case. The standard of applications to the BSc (Veterinary Bioscience) program varies from year to year. Your friend may have scored higher in their interview. There are limited places available (40 per year for Level 1 – it is highly competitive).

    If I did not get an offer what are my options?
    Unsuccessful applicants can reapply for the Bachelor of Science (Veterinary Bioscience) the following year. It is recommended that applicants also apply for the Bachelor of Science (Animal Science) and apply to transfer into the Bachelor of Science (Veterinary Science) the following year. The first year of both programs is similar and opportunities exist for BSc (Animal Science) students to transfer into the second year of the BSc (Veterinary Bioscience). Please note that it is extremely competitive and the same admission process applies (i.e. academic grades, questionnaire and interview process).

    How do I lodge a complaint?

Applicants must provide a written statement outlining their concerns and attaching any relevant documentation and submit electronically to within 1 month of receiving their application outcome.
