New 2021 entry pathways for School Leavers

We've introduced new pathways for current Year 12 school leavers to apply for admission to UWA

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed everything from where we can go and who we can see to how much pasta we’re allowed to buy, but even with these changes, if you’re hoping to apply to UWA, we’ve got you covered.

School leavers entry pathways

ATAR-based entry

If Year 12 exams take place as normal, you’ll be able to apply the same way as previous years. Easy.

Predicted ATAR entry

We’ll be providing offers based on your predicted ATAR score from the end of Year 11 or Year 12 if available.

STAT entry

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.

What you'll need to apply

  • Have your most recent school report
  • Predicted ATAR if available. If you don't have your predicted ATAR, UWA will give you one in the application process based on your school report.
  • You'll hear from us within 7 working days

We've received a high influx of applications, kindly expect a slight delay to the outcome of your application. Thank you for your patience. We promise to be in touch as soon as possible.
