You can apply for entry to an undergraduate degree course through UWay if your academic achievements have been adversely affected by certain disadvantages.

This applies to Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) or equivalent qualification students, including mature age WACE students or students with previous tertiary study who are:

  • Australian citizens
  • permanent residents of Australia
  • New Zealand citizens or
  • holders of an Australian permanent humanitarian visa.

UWay is available to students applying for any of our undergraduate courses. You are required to meet UWA's other admission requirements:

Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander students are advised to discuss special admission through the UWA School of Indigenous Studies.

For WACE students, the basis of the appeal would usually be outside the scope of an SCSA Sickness and Misadventure claim.
