Applications and Offers Timing Matrix
The following document provides a timing matrix for the Application and Offers Data Collection for the 2012 Reporting Year and all Higher Education submissions due in the 2012 calendar year.
University Applications and Offers Data Collection - 2012 Data Requirements
Table A and B Higher Education providers are required to provide data to DEEWR containing details on an applicant’s demographics and application details, including an applicant’s preferences and offers made in response to an application. The collection comprises records for all applications made for admission to a higher education undergraduate award course submitted through a Tertiary Admissions Centre (TAC) or directly to a HEP. HEPs need only submit data in respect to applications made directly to their institution. Where a HEP has an authorised application made through a TAC, the data should be submitted by that TAC.
This data will need to be provided to DEEWR as set out in the timing matrix released each year and in accordance with the scope and structure documents for each data submission.
