Fast Track Offers – Information Sheet

What is Fast Track?
The Fast Track process gives high-achieving domestic school-leavers undertaking NCEA or Cambridge International, a head start in enrolling with the University of Auckland.

How does Fast Track work?
Fast Track offers are made to high-achieving domestic and international school-leavers who have applied to the University of Auckland to commence their studies in Semester 1, 2021.
Applicants who receive and accept their Fast Track offer can enrol from 1 November 2020, before the summer break, rather than having to wait until January 2021. This gives them the advantage of selecting their courses early and increases the likelihood of getting into courses that have a limited number of available places.
A Fast Track offer is conditional. That means it is subject to the applicant meeting the University Entrance (UE) standard, the rank score and any other entry requirements for their chosen programme(s), and is based on their final results in January 2021.

When will applicants receive Fast Track offers?
Fast Track offers will be sent out from the 5 May 2020 until 8 December 2020.
Students have until 17 December 2020 to accept the offer and enrol into their courses for Semester 1, 2021. Offers not accepted by the expiry date will be withdrawn, however, the student’s programme application will remain open and await the standard processing in January 2021.

How can you help applicants who received a Fast Track offer?
It is important to be aware that students could receive multiple offers if they have applied for more than one programme. To help students manage these offers, please encourage them to follow the process below:

1. Accept the Fast Track offer to their preferred programme.
Students must accept their Fast Track offer by the expiry date (17 December 2020).

2. Enrol into their preferred programme from 1 November 2020.
Once students accept their Fast Track offer, they can enrol from 1 November 2020 and get a head start in choosing their courses.

3. Leave all other offers open until final results are published in January 2021.
Students who are issued more than one Fast Track offer and decide to accept only one, should leave the other offers open so they have options to fall back on if their final results don’t meet the entry requirements for their preferred programme.

How can you help applicants who did not receive a Fast Track offer?
Applicants who have not received a Fast Track offer should not be deterred. Their application will be assessed when their final NCEA or Cambridge International results are released in January 2021, and if they meet the requirements for their programme, they will be guaranteed a place.

What advice and support is available for applicants?
From December 2020, we will be holding course-advice clinics that all applicants, whether they’ve received a Fast Track offer or not, are welcome to attend. More information will be available on our website closer to the time.
