3 different ways for current Year 12 school leavers to apply for admission to our main undergraduate degrees
Ready to begin your career journey at UWA? If you are currently in Year 12, our Early Offers pathway means you can tick your application off your list early. So, it's one less thing you need to think about, and you can spend that time focusing on your final exams.
Entry pathways available for 2023
Predicted ATAR entry
We’ll be providing offers based on your predicted ATAR score using UWA's calculator and will be based on your final Year 11 or mid Year 12 results when available.
Students must have a minimum predicted ATAR of 80 (Broadway ATAR of 78) and meet the entry requirements for their nominated course to receive an offer.
If your predicted ATAR does not meet the early offer entry requirements for your nominated UWA course you will receive a conditional offer – conditional that you satisfy the ATAR requirement for your chosen course through your final Year 12 ATAR. Students who do not satisfy the minimum UWA entry requirements can do so by successfully completing the Special Tertiary Admission Test (STAT).
Even if you’re not taking enough ATAR subjects for university entry (or not taking ATAR at all), you can still apply to UWA through a Special Tertiary Admissions Test. Year 12 students completing VET qualifications are eligible for this pathway.
STAT pathway is only available for entry to the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Environmental Design, Bachelor of Music (Music is a specialist degree but is eligible through STAT subject to audition), Bachelor of Science (the Mathematics and Statistics Major and the Physics Major are subject to prerequisite requirements), Bachelor of Biomedical Science and Bachelor of Commerce.
ATAR based entry
Students can use their final Year 12 ATAR to apply for UWA courses, applying either direct or via TISC.
Experience-based entry open now for Semester 1
