Once UTS International has received this documentation an electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCoE ) will be issued. UTS reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission or Confirmation of Enrolment in cases where an applicant for admission to a course has not provided true and complete information or where UTS is not satisfied that the student meets the Genuine Temporary Entrant and/or Genuine Student requirements set by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).


Deferring your offer

In some cases you may apply for deferment if you are unable to commence your study in the coming semester. If approved, deferment is usually for one year, although deferment until July may be considered for some courses. Not all courses can be deferred, and some courses do not have a July Semester (Spring) intake. If your deferment is approved then you will be sent a new offer. You will not have to reapply to UTS. The new offer will be subject to the entry requirements and fees applicable to the new intake. Your offer will lapse if you enrol in an undergraduate award course at any other tertiary institution during the next 12 months.

If you wish to defer you must apply in writing before the deadline in your letter of offer. If you applied through an agent, please contact your agent to arrange deferment.

If you applied directly, contact us by email at international.applications@uts.edu.au.
