We understand that the application, offer and enrolment process for university can be a little daunting. That's why we're here to help!
Following is some information that will help you through the application process and, hopefully, get you into the course you want to study at UWA. At any time, if you have any further queries, you can ask a question online, or contact us to discuss your individual options.
Australian domestic students (Australian citizens, permanent residents, holders of humanitarian visas and New Zealand citizens), apply online through the Tertiary Institutions Service Centre (TISC).
Mature-age applicants (aged 20 or more before 1 March 2014) using an ATAR, previous study or the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) as a basis of admission will apply online via TISC as indicated above.
UWA also offers mature-aged people with little or no previous background in tertiary study the opportunity to commence their degree on a trial basis via the Mature-age Access Program (MAP), which requires a manual application to the University. Find out more about eligibility criteria and other important information. Please note Semester 1, 2014 applications for MAP will open on 1 October and close 31 October.
