Admission or selection appeal

Where an applicant is not made an offer and the applicant believes that their application has not been properly considered, they will initially raise their concerns with the Manager, University Admission Centre or if an international student, the Manager, International Admissions.

Step 1: Raise your concerns

Concerns raised may  be satisfactorily resolved through discussion with the Manager, University Admission Centre or Manager, International Admissions as appropriate.  If this is not possible and you wish to pursue the matter, you may lodge a formal appeal.

Step 2: Lodge a formal appeal in writing

A formal appeal must be submitted, in writing, within 10 working days of notification of the offer not being made. The timing is important because if the decision is over turned and you are selected to attend Curtin, you don’t want to miss the start of the academic period.

The written appeal should be lodged via email to Manager, University Admissions Centre by emailing or if you are an international student, the Manager, International Admissions by emailing

The Director, Admissions and Scholarships or Director, Curtin International, will determine the appeal in consultation, as appropriate, with the relevant Faculty Pro Vice-Chancellor, relevant Head of School and/or Academic Registrar.

The procedure on Admission Appeals is available for review in the Admission and Enrolment Manual.
