Department of Education: Information for university applicants affected by 2019-2020 Australian bushfires

The destruction and disruption caused by bushfires across the country is immense and widespread. Universities and admission centres recognise that some applicants will be unable to complete their applications or take action on preferences and offers.

If you have been affected by the fires and need help with your university application, we encourage you to get in touch with your admission centre for assistance. Alternatively, you can contact your higher education provider directly.
