How do early offers work for year 12 ATAR students?

If you’re currently completing year 12, you can now apply to study at Curtin via TISC. If you’re eligible, you’ll receive an early offer to study with us before you’ve even finished year 12.  

Early offers are available for most Curtin courses. If you choose an eligible Curtin course as your first preference in TISC, your year 11 results will be used to calculate your predicted ATAR. Early offers will start to be released from 17 July and will then be sent out every third Monday of each month.

If your predicted ATAR is five points above the ATAR score required for your selected course, you’ll receive an early offer that secures your place in semester 1, 2024. Your offer won’t be dependent on your final year 12 ATAR score.

You’ll still need to complete WACE and meet the English and subject requirements for your course.
