Step 1. Accept the Unconditional Offer
There are two ways you can accept an Unconditional Offer. Either:

You will need to make full payment by the due date on your Unconditional Offer letter, unless the letter explicitly states otherwise. There are several methods of payment available.
Full payment will include:

- Student services and amenities fee (SSA fee) - this is billed to you (if applicable) once your unit of study selection has been finalised

Step 3. Students who are under 18
You may have additional visa and/or guardianship requirements, if you will be under 18 years of age when you arrive in Australia.
You will have the opportunity to confirm your preferred units of study closer to the start of your commencing semester.
If you will be a health care student (in the faculties of Dentistry, Health Sciences, Medicine, or Nursing and Midwifery), your course may require you to complete clinical training, fieldwork or placements in facilities operated by the New South Wales Department of Health. This means you need to provide evidence of appropriate health screenings, including current vaccination records.
If a health check is a requirement for your course, you will be sent information and forms separately by mail. Please bring your health records and all forms to your faculty when enrolling.
Criminal record checks may also be required for some courses involving placements in health and education facilities in New South Wales.
- For more information about health placements, please visit the New South Wales Department of Health website.
- For more information about education placements, please visit the Faculty of Education and Social Work website.
This Offer and Acceptance are governed by the law in force in New South Wales. By accepting this offer of admission to the University of Sydney, you submit to the non-exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of New South Wales, Australia.
