The time required for applications to be considered and a decision to be made will vary by university.

There are 3 main types of university offer
  • Unconditional Offer An unconditional offer means you have provided all the qualifications as required and have been accepted by the university onto the course.
  • Conditional Offer A conditional offer means you have to meet certain conditions, typical examples of this include: provide a final transcript that confirms your GPA; obtain a certain IELTS score or apply for a pre-sessional course; provide original copies of documents, make a deposit, etc. Once these conditions have been met, you will be accepted onto the course and the university will change your offer to unconditional.
  • Reject a rejection means you have not been accepted onto the course.
If you receive offers from more than 1 university, you should give yourself time to consider your options thoroughly.  Once you have made your decision about which offer to pursue, proceed to accept the offer and process to the next stage. SpringBoard team will advice you clearly about every process that will make your life easier and your study journey dream in reality.
