Your results

You’ve worked so hard to get to this point, whatever the outcome may be, we’re proud of your achievements. Here is some information you can consider when applying to UWA.

Entry requirements

There may be an extra step in your application if you haven’t met particular entry requirements, but don’t worry, there are options available so you can still be on track to enter the course you want to study at UWA. Find out the entry requirements for your chosen course at UWA Handbooks.

All our courses require you to satisfy the English language competency level set by the University. But if you don't meet that level, it's not your final option.

If you have completed WACE in Western Australia and have completed English ATAR,Literature ATAR or EALD ATAR with a final scaled mark less than 49.00  you will be able to complete the unit Communications in Practice (PACM1101) within the first semester of your studies at UWA. Alternatively you may sit the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) on 30 December 2020 2 January or 6 February 2021.

Refer to your Universities Admission Advice Letter (UAAL) on TISC Online to confirm if you meet the University's requirements.


The Australian Government provides Commonwealth-supported places in courses at UWA for students who are Australian or New Zealand citizens or holders of an Australian permanent resident visa.

TISC applications

The Tertiary Institutions Service Centre (TISC) processes school leaver university applications on behalf of UWA and other public universities in Western Australia. Make sure you mark the important dates in this section in your calendar to avoid late fees. We’ve listed some simple steps on how to apply through TISC and how to order your preferences.

Note that students who have applied directly to UWA are not required by UWA to also apply through TISC. This decision remains at the discretion of the student. Students who do not apply through TISC will still receive an ATAR and be able to view their year 12 results.
