Welcome to the Central Application Clearing House (CACH)


The CACH provides a service to prospective applicants who are not successful at the institutions they initially applied to, or who decide late that they wish to study. CACH compiles a register of verified prospective applicant information and makes it available to all institutions in the post-school education and training system. CACH also responds to requests when spaces become available and provides institutions with a register of those who meet the specific qualification entry requirements.

If you, 1. Know exactly what you would like to study next, 2. Have your exam number with you & 3. Have your identity number with you, click the link below. You will also be able to request a call back on the next page.
