Back cover
Melbourne's courses the most
popular choice
VTAC applications for 2014 indicate that Arts and Science
degrees at the University of Melbourne are the most popular
undergraduate course choices across the state. Bachelors
of Commerce and Biomedicine also fall into the top eight
most popular courses.
2124 places were offered for Science, an increase of 11 per
cent compared to last year, and 34 places in the Bachelor
of Science (Chancellor’s Scholars’ Program). Science
offered the most places of any course at the University of
Melbourne for this year.
Clearly-in ATARs have risen for Arts, Biomedicine,
Environments and Science, indicating increased preference
for these courses.
The introduction of guaranteed entry to Commerce for
domestic students with an ATAR of 95.00 or above, along
with heightened interest in the course, has resulted in an
increase to 951 round one offers in the degree in 2014.
Agriculture offers also increased significantly from 90 offers in
2013 to 132 this year.
Overall offers and offers to school-leavers have each
increased four per cent despite a stable number of Year
12 students completing in 2013. Interstate offers to the
University rose by 22 per cent, with 1361 offers made to
students from other states, with particularly high application
numbers from New South Wales and Queensland.
About one third of all University of Melbourne offers made
were to students who meet the Access Melbourne
categories of a disadvantaged financial background or rural
and isolated areas. This is an increase of around eight per cent
from 2013.

You asked for it!
Why didn’t I get an offer and what should I do now?
If you didn’t get an offer for 2014 at Melbourne you either didn’t meet the 2014 clearly-in rank for the course or did not
meet the entry requirements (prerequisites or other requirements depending on the course).
Increased demand for our courses has resulted in higher clearly-in ATARs for 2014 in some cases and means there may
be less chance of a negotiated offer being available.
