How to apply
Undergraduate – Non-school leavers
UWA celebrates a diverse cohort of students, from school leavers to octogenarians. Find all the information below for entry into a standard bachelor’s degree program.
Four-course or two-course ATAR
These one-year programs are ideal if you want to gain entry to a competitive course that requires a high ATAR or if you are under the age of 20 years old and aren’t eligible for one of the above entry pathways. You can study these pathways at:
You’ll be eligible to study one of our comprehensive bachelor degrees once you’ve successfully completed a graded Australian University Enabling Program that satisfies our entry requirements.
Completion of an Enabling Program will satisfy UWA's English Language Competency requirements. Enabling programs do not satisfy subject prerequisite requirements unless assessed by a UWA teaching area.
Foundation Programs are courses of study of at least one academic year. Successful completion may provide eligibility to one of UWA’s comprehensive degree (subject to quotas and degree requirements).
English language competence and subject prerequisites will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Applications for study at UWA are open now. You can start studying in Semester 1, which runs from February to June, or start in Semester 2, which runs from July to October. Other relevant dates, including exam periods, are available on the University calendar.
The Mature-Age Access Program has a slightly different timeline. Check the MAP page for details.
