As UWA’s own pathway provider, when you study with UWA College you’re guaranteeing* your place at UWA with a packaged, direct pathway into the first or second year of a range of UWA degrees.

* Subject to meeting the minimum course entry requirements and any additional selection criteria prescribed by UWA

Your study options

Foundation studies

Designed specifically for international students, the UWA Foundation Program prepares you for a seamless transition to your first year at UWA.


Diploma programs

UWA College’s Diploma programs provide subject-specific guidance to prepare you for entry into the second year of your UWA undergraduate degree.

English language support

UWA College works closely with UWA’s Centre for English Language Teaching (CELT) to provide students with English language support through their Language and Communication Essentials (LCE) program.

Yasmin with friends

I love the variety of class types and study places from UWA College being within the UWA campus itself. Walking to classes gets me ready for the day no matter how busy I am because of the nature I get to see on the way to class. I have also never experienced teaching this enriching.

Is a pathway right for me?

  • You don’t currently meet the direct entry requirements for UWA and need some additional academic support
  • You need some help improving your English language skills
  • You’ve just graduated from secondary school and need some additional support to make the transition to university
