TODAY brings the start of a new chapter for many high school graduates, with the first round of university offers released at 1am.

Students will this morning learn whether they were accepted into one of their chosen programs and are on their way to their dream careers.

Scots PGC College graduate Elliese Ackermann scored an OP2 last month and is now hoping to be accepted into a program that will kick-start a career in medicine.

Those who have missed out on their desired course need not fear, with QTAC advising they consider alternative pathways, such as completing a year in a less preferred course could improve competitiveness for admission in the following year.

Friday, February 1 is the final date to change or add preferences for the February 7 offer round.

New applications should be lodged by January 23 to ensure they are assessed in time for the February round.

Visit qtac.edu.au for more information.
