The Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) is the qualification used for admission to the University by many students. It offers a wide range of courses and stages to accommodate students' varied interests and abilities.
If you are studying the WACE, have never undertaken tertiary study and are not a mature-age student, you will be considered for admission to UWA if you:
- achieve the WACE
- achieve English language competence
- satisfy any course prerequisites for entry into a particular major
- obtain a sufficiently high Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) to gain a place in the degree course.
