How to give uni selection stress the boot!

30/11/2021 |

So here you are, you’ve finished your exams and facing one of the biggest decisions of your educational life: deciding which university is right for you. And handling the stress like a total champion, by the way!

The good news is you have the power to vaporise some of that stress and free up your mental load so you can really enjoy the upcoming holidays.


If you’ve received an offer, all you have to do is accept – and when you consider all the amazing things UWA has to offer (more on that a bit later), this should be a pretty easy decision!

If you haven’t received an offer, all you need to do is apply direct to get an early offer or select UWA as your preference in TISC – and boom, just like that, you’re one step closer to your future!

But what if you still don’t know what to study? Don’t worry! Lots of people are still figuring out what they want to study – you’re not alone. You can choose multiple courses when you apply direct to UWA and you can select multiple references in TISC. You can even change some or all of your preferences at any time, subject to closing dates. Find out more on the TISC website.

And if you’re worried you won’t get the ATAR results you want – Our philosophy is that worrying means you suffer twice (did we just quote Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them?). There are plenty of options and pathways for you to choose. We want to do everything we can to help you achieve your goals. The best thing to do is contact us when you find out your ATAR results and we can talk you through all the options available to you.

That’s it: wait for your ATAR results knowing you either have an offer lined up or your preferences are already set. Now we’ve got that out of the way, you’re probably thinking “Why should I choose UWA?”

It’s a great question, and we have three great reasons why you’re going to love life at UWA.

  1. UWA students have awesome career opportunities
    Besides being number 1 in WA for graduate employability (QS Employability Ranking 2022), UWA students work alongside our 4,500-strong global industry partners on real-world challenges – which looks super attractive to future employers.
  2. Teaching that goes beyond the books
    According to our alumni, our lecturers have a very hands-on, practical style of teaching. Need something more official? The Good Universities Guide 2021 gave us a 5-star rating for teaching quality!
  3. The campus lifestyle is 👌👌👌
    Everyone will agree our diverse and inclusive campus is one of Australia’s most picturesque! With 160+ clubs and societies, social and competitive sports, accommodation that’s close to cafes and shops (and a short bus trip from amazing beaches) and our health & wellbeing services, you’ll have a uni life that’s second to none.

So, ready to put the groundwork in place to make UWA a part of your future? Get the ball rolling and you’ll have one less thing to worry about. And once you’ve accepted, you can relax and enjoy your summer holiday!

Our friendly Future Students team is on hand to talk through all the options available to you. Submit an enquiry through askUWA, call us on 131 UWA (131 892) or book an appointment.
