Next step: check admission requirements

Academic qualifications

Compulsory for all applicants
Tertiary education details
You must declare and submit evidence of all attempts at tertiary studies, including failed courses or units, regardless of how long ago you undertook them.
English language competency
To be eligible for admission to UWA, you must demonstrate satisfactory performance in a UWA-approved test of English. This is the case even if English is your first language.
Domestic students generally meet their English Language Competence (ELC) requirements by successful completion of the last two years of full-time or equivalent degree studies undertaken in an English-speaking university.
Provide if relevant
Secondary education
Only required for Master of Professional Engineering (MPE - including Preliminary) applicants; however, you can include your ATAR or TEE score (or equivalent) if you know it.
Work history and other qualifications
Unless the course you are applying for specifically requires you to submit your resume with your application, you only need to provide details of qualifications and work history relevant to the course you are applying for (such as Senior First Aid certificate, Working With Children check, practical field experience).

Additional requirements

In addition to academic qualifications, some courses may require you to provide further information or documentation, before your application can be assessed; examples of these include:

  1. Personal statements
  2. Resumes 
  3. Non-academic certifications (such as National Police Certificate, Senior First Aid Certificate) 
  4. Admissions test results (such as GAMSAT, LSAT, GMAT)
  5. References

Note: not all courses have additional requirements. Refer to the 'Entrance requirements' and 'How to apply' tabs on the relevant course information page to check if there is anything further you need to provide. Once you have referred to this information, continue with the next step.

Find out more about admission requirements.

Next step: check documentation

It is your responsibility to provide all supporting documents. Applications where information or documentation is incomplete may not be successful. Supporting documents (for example, academic transcripts, Proof of Citizenship, Permanent Residency or Name Change) must be scanned from the original in colour (where possible) and uploaded as part of your online application (find out about our scanned document requirements).

Please note that for verification purposes you may also be asked to submit your documents as either originals or correctly certified copies

Find out more about providing supporting documentation with your application.

Next step: final checklist and apply online

Things to remember:

  • Read and complete all sections of the online application.
  • Declare all attempts at tertiary study.
  • Indicate your course preferences.
  • Provide copies of your English-language examination results (demonstrating English language competence is compulsory for entry to ALL courses at UWA).
  • Provide copies of your qualifications and academic transcripts.
  • Provide copies of your Proof of Citizenship/Permanent Residency/Name Change (as applicable).
  • Read and accept the declaration.
  • Complete online application and submit.

How long will it take?

Set aside about 15-20 minutes to answer all the questions. Once you've created a log-in, you may stop at any time and return to your application later; the system will remember what you have completed so far. Before pressing the final ‘submit’ button, you can go back and edit any of your answers, so don’t worry if you have made a mistake.

Fraudulent applications: UWA considers it a serious offence to submit a false declaration or false documents. If you are offered a place in a course and your application is subsequently found to have been incomplete or misleading, your enrolment may be terminated and your academic record annotated accordingly. By continuing with the application process, you are acknowledging that you understand and accept these terms.
