Access UWA

AccessUWA is open to everyone and enables you to study individual units without being enrolled in a degree course at UWA.

Audit students (non-assessed)

If you want to study at UWA but don't want the stress of assignments and exams, this option allows you to attend university lectures without participating in tutorials or fulfilling any practical requirements, including assignments or examinations.

Single-unit enrolment (assessed)

If you need a supplementary unit to complement your existing qualifications or wish to study individual units of your choice at UWA without having to enrol in a full degree course, this option allows you to attend lectures, tutorials, seminars, and laboratory sessions and undertake assessment throughout the semester.

School-leavers and undergraduates (assessed)

AccessUWA provides you with an opportunity to enrol in units at UWA without being formally admitted to a degree course. Upon successful completion of a minimum number of units, you can apply for undergraduate admission based on your AccessUWA results.

In some cases, upon completion you may be eligible to apply for undergraduate admission based on your Continuing Education (assessed) results. Check the requirements or discuss your options with the Future Students Office before applying.
