Higher Education Frequently Asked Questions When will offers be made? Applications are assessed on a case by case basis and we make several rounds of offers in some programs. First round offers in most programs will be made in December 2020 or January 2021. Waitlisted and later round offers can be made at any time including up until the start of teaching in some cases. We let applicants know as soon as possible once a decision is made however this is a long and fairly complex process. All rejected applicants will be contacted as soon as possible. All applicants should have a final outcome by the end of March 2021. Please do not contact Cairnmillar to follow up on the status of your application – we do not currently have the capacity to respond to such requests and answering these slows down processing for all applicants. Any such queries will not be responded to. You can also check the status of your application in our Application Portal.
