The course offers packet is used to report all offers and responses to offers for admission to a higher education undergraduate award course made directly to a Table A or Table B provider. Each course offers packet must be linked to an established course applications packet.

Scope

Table A and Table B providers that receive direct applications are required to report a course offers packet for each offer made in response to an application that the provider has reported through a course application packet. That is, course offer packets must be reported for offers made against valid applications lodged by a domestic applicant where the application contains at least one preference for a Commonwealth supported place in a higher education undergraduate award course.

A course offers packet is to be reported for every formal offer made to an applicant in response to the course application, irrespective of the type or level of course offered, the fee arrangements, whether the course was or is still listed as a course preference by the applicant, or the sector in which the course is to be delivered.

Reporting deadlines

The reference date for the 2022 University Applications and Offers Collection is 14 May 2022. The 2022 University Applications and Offers Collection is due 31 May 2022.

Uniqueness

Each course preferences packet must have a unique combination of the values for:

  • course application identifier (UID23 or combination of E700/E415)
  • preference ordinal position (E713) (unless ‘00’ or ‘99’ are reported)
  • date offered (E705).

Revising and adding data

A provider can correct any data already in a course offers packet, if required. A provider may create as many additional course offers packets as necessary to add course offers in response to a course application. If the offer has more than one basis for admission into the course, the additional basis for admission code (E327) is to be reported through the basis for admission packet (for a course offer).
