still waiting for your uni offer?

Don’t worry! You can reserve your room and rest easy knowing that you can cancel your agreement with limited liability if you don’t receive an offer from Melbourne Polytechnic. We call this First Year Exemption, and we think it’s pretty cool.
How do I know if I am eligible for First Year Exemption?

You are an Eligible Resident for First Year Exemption if you are a domestic first year student who has applied to the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) as a Year 12 applicant for an offer to study at Melbourne Polytechnic in the 2017 year (University Offer).

How does First Year Exemption work?

As an Eligible Resident, you can apply and (if accepted by Village Management) enter into a Residential Agreement at Yarra House before receiving and accepting an offer to study at Melbourne Polytechnic (University Offer) with the knowledge that you can terminate your Residential Agreement with limited liability.

To qualify, you must be an Eligible Resident and enter into a Residential Agreement at Yarra House for the 2017 year commencing 1 January 2017 and:

  1. Be notified by the Victorian Tertiary Admissions Centre (VTAC) that you have not received a University Offer; or
  2. Receive a University Offer from VTAC but elect not to accept the University Offer.

The First Year Exemption will not apply where you have accepted a University Offer but you elect to defer or withdraw from your studies.

You must notify Village Management in writing (Resident Notification) within 5 days from the VTAC Round 1 offers release date (generally around the third week of January – refer to the VTAC website for actual dates).

What do I do if I have moved in and choose not to study at Melbourne Polytechnic or do not receive an offer from Melbourne Polytechnic?

If you are residing in Yarra House, you must vacate your residence within 48 hours of providing the Resident Notification to Village Management (see Question 2: How does First Year Exemption work?).

If you comply with all of the above terms, your liability under the Residential Agreement will be limited to the Residential Fees and other charges payable under the Residential Agreement from 1 January 2017 to the date Village Management receives the Resident Notification from you.

First Year Exemption will not apply where you have accepted a University Offer but you elect to defer or withdraw from your studies.

If you do not comply with the abovementioned terms, the First Year Exemption will not apply and you will be liable for all Residential Fees and other charges payable under the Residential Agreement.

How do I apply for First Year Exemption?

If you meet the above criteria you will automatically be eligible for First Year Exemption.

To be released from your contract you must notify Village Management in writing (Resident Notification) within 7 days from the VTAC Round 1 offers release date.

Please send an email with your VTAC documentation attached via email to info@yarrahouse.com.au
