Entry requirements

Selection will be based on academic merit, with places being offered to the highest-ranked applicants for each course.

A wide range of qualifications will be considered. Some of the acceptable minimum qualifications include:

  • past tertiary entrance rank (TER/ATAR), or interstate equivalent, which meets the University’s minimum rank of 80.00
  • various overseas school-leaving qualifications
  • one full-time semester or more of degree study at another university
  • completed diploma (or higher) from TAFE, or a private provider accredited under the Australian Qualifications Framework
  • satisfactory results in the Special Tertiary Admissions Test  (mature-age students only).
  • completed Bachelor degree, or equivalent (honours and graduate-entry diploma applicants)

ALL applicants must demonstrate English-language competence, and satisfy any additional subject prerequisites.

Note: Results from studies undertaken in Semester One, 2016 may not be taken into account in time for mid-year commencement unless official results are available by Friday 15 July, 2016.

If you are unsure if your qualifications meet our standard entry requirements, contact the Admissions Centre on (+61 8) 6488 2477 or send us an email with details of your academic background.

English language competence

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.

Most applicants demonstrate English language competence through achieving a combined scaled score of 50 or more in WACE English or EALD, TEE English or English Literature, or an acceptable score in English as a Second Language (ESL – if eligible), or their equivalents.

If you are over 20 years of age, or you have qualifications other than the WACE or TEE, there are a number of alternative ways you can demonstrate English language competence. Please refer to the list of UWA-approved tests of English.

Do not assume you have met the University’s English language competence requirement by taking degree studies elsewhere. If you are unsure about your qualifications, or have other results which you believe demonstrate competence, contact the Admissions Centre for advice.

Supporting documentation

It is your responsibility to provide all supporting documents (for example, academic transcripts, diplomas, Proof of Name Change); these must be submitted as originals or correctly certified copies as follows:

IntakeApplicant/course typeSubmit to
Semester OneBachelor degree (excluding MAP applicants)Tertiary Institutions Service Centre (TISC)
Mature-age Access Program (MAP) applicantsUWA Admissions
Honours, graduate entry diploma applicantsUWA Admissions
Semester TwoAll undergraduate applicantsUWA Admissions

Academic results

The Admissions Centre has access to past WACE / TEE / TAE results from 1976 onwards, as well as most results from previous or current study at UWA.

You must still declare these qualifications on your application, but you do not need to submit transcripts for them.

  • All other results and qualifications should be submitted to TISC, or the Admissions Centre as applicable. Official academic transcripts are required. Statements of examination results are not acceptable.
  • All documents must be originals or correctly certified copies. We will copy and certify original documents and return them to you. Alternatively, copies of original documents may be certified by UWA-approved authorities. Certified copies will not be returned unless requested by you in writing.
  • If your qualifications were awarded in another name, proof of the name change (such as a marriage certificate or deed poll) will be required.

If you are unable to complete the online application in person, you must provide written authority for another person to apply on your behalf. This authority should be included with your supporting documents (copies of your school results, academic transcripts, proof of citizenship / permanent residency) which should be submitted along with a printed copy of your Review Application page to the Admissions Centre as soon as possible.

Applications not received by the relevant closing date, or that have incomplete information or documentation, may not be successful.

Fraudulent applications

You must declare and submit evidence of all attempts at secondary and tertiary studies, including failed courses or units, regardless of how long ago you undertook them.

You will also need to complete a declaration that your application is true and complete.

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.

Certification of documents

Any supporting document which is not an original must be formally certified as a true and accurate copy of the original by a UWA-approved authority. Copies with any other form of certification are not acceptable.

Proof of citizenship or permanent residence

You will need to supply proof of Australian or New Zealand citizenship, or Australian permanent residence (PR) at the time of enrolment (i.e. do not submit with your application). One or more of the following documents can be used for this purpose:

  • original or certified copy of an Australian or New Zealand birth certificate
  • Australian or New Zealand Passport, or a certified copy of the identity page of your passport (usually the first page)
  • other foreign national passport showing Australian residency status (permanent residents and humanitarian visa holders must provide a valid residency visa), or a certified copy of both the identity page and the visa page of a current passport.

You will need to bring this documentation with you during enrolment and/or orientation week. Your enrolment will not be finalised without it.

Apply online

If you are an Australian student who has deferred accepting an undergraduate place at UWA, and now wish to take up the offer and commence studying in the coming semester, you need to re-apply online.

If you wish to simply take up your deferred place:

  • Apply directly to UWA
  • Fill out the online re-application form below, once applications open
  • You do not need to re-submit any documents
  • You will be sent a new offer of a place, in January (Semester One) or July (Semester Two), in the course of the normal offer round
 

If you wish to be considered for other courses before your deferred course:
