What is First Year Exemption? Am I eligible?

If you are a domestic first year student applying through UAC / VTAC / QTAC / TISC you may be eligible for First Year Exemption.

You are eligible if:
* You did not get accepted to the university
* Were accepted to another university
* The course is now wholly offered online (ie not being taught internally)

If your contract has not commenced you will be refunded your Bond.

If your contract has started, you are liable for rent up to the date of notification of moving out of the village. Your Bond will be refunded.

Please note the First Year Exemption policy will not apply where you have accepted a university offer but have chosen to defer or withdraw from your studies. You must notify village management in writing (resident notification) within 5 days of the UAC / VTAC / QTAC / TISC Main Round offers release date (generally around late January – refer to the UAC / VTAC / QTAC / TISC website for actual dates) to claim the First Year Exemption policy.
