  • Admission requirements

    Start here
    We look forward to receiving applications from school leavers and non-school leavers. You will find the required ATAR for guaranteed entry to most of our courses below. Please be aware that entry into the Bachelor of Philosophy is quite competitive and a higher ATAR may be required. Here are some tips to make sure your application has the greatest chance of success:
    1. Read the information on this website and the summary of our admission requirements. Take note of the important dates so you don't miss an important deadline. If we don't hear from you by a particular date, this may cause some problems but we'll always work with you to find a solution. Be sure to get in touch with us if this occurs
    2. Consult our Undergraduate Course Guide for more information about our globally recognised courses. Also, check the Future Students website for the latest information.
    3. Check that you've met the prerequisites or recommended courses for your intended area of study (see individual course entries on the UWA website or via Course Search), and that you satisfy the University's English language competence requirement.
    4. If you've got any questions at all, contact UWA Admissions at admissions@uwa.edu.au or on 6488 2477.

    Classification of applicants
    Most applicants to UWA are considered in two groups: You're a Group 1 (school leaver) applicant if you've never undertaken any tertiary level study (diploma or above), you're automatically a Group 2 applicant if you've undertaken tertiary level study (diploma or above) or have not completed a school leaving qualification in the last two years.

    Group 1 applicants are ranked for selection according to their ATAR (or equivalent).

    Entry to the Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) and most Direct Pathways is only available to Group 1 applicants.
  • English language competence

    Successful university study demands a high level of English language skills. Many applicants will be able to demonstrate English language competence through satisfactory performance in the required English subjects when they were at school. If you're not able to demonstrate English language competence in this way, then you'll need satisfactory performance in an alternative UWA-approved test of English. A list of approved tests is available at studyat.uwa.edu.au/elc. UWA does require all applicants to demonstrate satisfactory English language competence before an offer can be made for non-provisional entry.
  • Past and current students of The University of Western Australia

    Apply directly to UWA if you:
    • Have graduated from another university and want to apply for Honours at UWA; or
    • Deferred your offer in 2017 and now wish to take up the same course in 2018 (UWA Admissions Centre will contact you throughout the year regarding this process); or

  • Available courses

    Bachelor of Arts, Biomedical Science, Commerce and Science
    Our course structure is unique in Western Australia and sets you up for a global career. Five undergraduate degrees are available: Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Biomedical Science (BBiomedSc), Bachelor of Commerce (BCom), Bachelor of Science (BSc) and Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) (BPhil(Hons)).

    This flexible course structure allows you to combine units of study across various faculties to suit your professional and personal interests. It's your degree, your way, and will give you a competitive edge in this rapidly changing world.

    The Medical Sciences major is also available for students wanting to undertake Health-related courses. Students can complete this major within any of the Undergraduate degrees at the University, however places within the major are limited. Students receiving an offer through a Direct Pathway into Medicine, Dentistry, Podiatry or Pharmacy will be guaranteed a place in the Medical Sciences Major. A number of places will also be available for students who are not completing a direct pathway. To select this option, students are asked to nominate the Medical Sciences major TISC codes when selecting their preferences.

    Some professional qualifications, previously offered at undergraduate (first degree) level, are now delivered at postgraduate (second degree) level. This structure sees you complete an undergraduate degree before proceeding to the postgraduate course. These areas include Medicine, Dentistry, Podiatric Medicine, Teaching and Law. Other professional qualification pathways (Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Engineering and Music) comprise a structured sequence of undergraduate and postgraduate study. This enables you to complement your focussed professional training with broad study, encouraging the development of a range of skills sought after by employers.

    To see some real-life examples of how our course structure works, visit our Courses and Careers website.

    Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours)
    This is an inspiring and unique course. You can choose any undergraduate major (and a second major, if you wish) from any field of study in Arts, Biomedical Science, Commerce or Science. This is integrated into a research-intensive course that includes innovative interdisciplinary project work, a scholarship-supported study abroad experience and intensive academic mentoring - all at the highest standards of excellence.

    To gain entry you'll need a minimum ATAR of 98.00. Due to the limited number of places, achieving the minimum ATAR isn't a guarantee of securing a place.

    A small number of additional places are available to school leaver students from low socio-economic status, rural or indigenous backgrounds. The standard minimum ATAR may not apply for these students. If you believe you meet one of these criteria and are interested in the BPhil(Hons), check the relevant BPhil(Hons) course entries.

    See BPhil(Hons) for details of the selection process.

    Please note: there are separate codes for the BPhil(Hons) leading to one of the Direct Pathway postgraduate courses.
  • Direct pathways

    If you have a professional career in mind, take advantage of one of our Direct Pathways. A Direct Pathway gives you an assured place in one of our postgraduate professional courses. The pathways combine a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses, providing you with a clearer direction to your career of choice.

    There are a limited number of places available in each Direct Pathway. Please note there are separate codes to be used if you wish to apply for a Direct Pathway place via the Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours). If you secure a place in one of our Direct Pathways you'll be able to elect which major(s) to complete when you accept your offer.

    If you don't secure a Direct Pathway place, don't worry; places in these professional courses will still be available for you to apply for towards the end of your undergraduate degree.
  • Architecture and Landscape Architecture

    Studying architecture at UWA provides you with a rich combination of experiences in creativity, the humanities and the sciences. You'll learn about the conceptualisation, design and applications of individual buildings, specialist building projects, urban configurations and landscapes in response to existing and emerging economic, technical and social needs and desires.

    If you're interested in studying an Architecture Direct Pathway, you'll complete a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Architecture. This pathway guarantees you entry in to the Master of Architecture at the completion of your bachelor's degree.

    Students wishing to complete a Landscape Architecture Direct Pathway will complete a Bachelor of Arts, Biomedical Science, Commerce or Science, and one major completed must be Landscape Architecture. At the completion of the bachelor's degree, students have guaranteed entry in to the Master of Landscape Architecture.

    You will require a minimum ATAR of 92.00 to gain entry into an Architecture or Landscape Architecture Direct Pathway.

    We encourage students applying for the Direct Pathway to also apply for standard entry through one of the bachelor's degrees. This allows you to apply for the master's course towards the end of your bachelor's degree.
  • Engineering

    Our goal is to create independent graduates who are empowered to change the world and seek solutions to humanity's greatest challenges.

    Engineering staff and students take on projects of global significance, from inventing a needle microscope to pinpoint cancer cells, to creating safer designs for oil and gas pipelines. Our research directly informs strategy, policy, training and operations in the real world. In your studies, you'll benefit from close interaction with our leading researchers and their links to industry.

    Engineering Direct Pathway students can complete any of the five bachelor's degrees in their undergraduate studies.

    There are a number of Direct Pathways to the Juris Doctor degree. To be eligible, you must attain a minimum ATAR of 97.00.

    If you're successful in obtaining a place via one of the Direct Pathways, you'll undertake a Bachelor of Arts, Biomedical Science, Commerce or Science degree, and will be guaranteed entry in to the Juris Doctor provided you achieve a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5.5 in your bachelor's degree.

    We encourage students applying for the Direct Pathway to also apply for standard entry through one of the bachelor's degrees. This allows you to apply for the Juris Doctor towards the end of your bachelor's degree.
  • Medicine and Dentistry

    There are a number of school leaver pathways to the Doctor of Medicine and the Doctor of Dental Medicine. These include:

    Direct Pathway available to all school leaver applicants who obtain a minimum ATAR of 99.00 (other selection criteria apply).

    Broadway pathway available to school leaver applicants who have completed the whole of Year 12 including WACE at one of the identified Broadway UWA secondary schools. For a list of Broadway UWA schools visit the Future Students Broadway website. To be considered for the Broadway Pathway you'll need to submit an eligibility form to the Faculty by 29 September 2017. Applicants require a minimum ATAR of 96.00.

    Rural pathway available to school leavers if their principal home address has been in a defined rural area of Australia (ASGC-RA 2-5)* for a minimum of five years consecutive or 10 years cumulative. You can find the ASGC-RA code of a particular area at doctorconnect.gov.au/internet/otd/Publishing.nsf/Content/locator. To be considered for the Rural Pathway you will need to submit an eligibility form to the Faculty by 29 September 2017. Applicants require a minimum ATAR/Selection Rank of 96.00.

    If you're successful in obtaining a place via one of the school leaver pathways you'll undertake a Bachelor of Arts, Biomedical Science, Commerce or Science and be guaranteed entry to the Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Dental Medicine provided you achieve a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5.5 in your bachelor degree, equivalent to an overall subject average of approximately 65 percent. The offer will be for either the Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Dental Medicine and isn't transferable to another Direct Pathway.

    The duration of the Doctor of Medicine and Dental Medicine is four years full-time; however, students completing the Medical Sciences major will be able to complete the course in three years.

    Selection Criteria and Process
    The following selection procedures apply for all domestic school leaver Direct Pathway applicants. There are three components: a written test (UMAT), an academic threshold and a structured interview. For entry to dentistry you'll also need to successfully complete a Manual Dexterity and a Spatial Awareness test.
    • Undergraduate Medicine and Health Sciences Admission Test (UMAT)
      Only applicants who sat UMAT in 2017 will be eligible for a Direct Pathway position in Medicine or Dentistry in 2018. To ensure your UMAT result is matched to your TISC application, it's important to use the same name for your TISC application, and include your UMAT candidate number on your TISC application.
    • Academic Threshold
      You'll need a minimum ATAR of 99.00 to be included on the final ranked list for the Direct Pathway. You'll need a minimum ATAR/Selection Rank of 96.00 in order to be included on the final ranked list for the Rural and Broadway pathways. You must be ranked high enough on both the School Leaver Pathway and Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) final ranking lists to secure a direct entry place within the Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours).

      As a year 12 student, you'll need to authorise your school to send your predicted ATAR to the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. Download the form to submit to your school. Your school should then provide the Faculty with your predicted ATAR by 1 November 2017.
    • Structured Interview
      Offers for interview are based on UMAT scores with the provision that you've met, or are predicted to meet, the minimum academic threshold. Be mindful that, as medicine and dentistry each have different quotas and numbers of applicants, the UMAT threshold for each course may be different. If you've applied for both medicine and dentistry, you may receive an interview for one course and not the other. This will be made clear at the time of offer of the interview. Read more about the interview on our admissions website.
    • Manual Dexterity and Spatial Awareness Tests
      Applicants for the Doctor of Dental Medicine will be required to undertake a 35 minute multiple choice Spatial Awareness test produced by ACER. The test will be undertaken when you attend the selection interview and will be assessed on a 2-grade marking system (pass/fail). The test will not be used in the final ranking of applicants, however you will need to pass the test in order to be included on the final ranked list.
    Final Rankings for non-rural applicants will be based on performance in UMAT, performance at an interview and academic results, and will be weighted 20:40:40 respectively. Final ranking for rural applicants will be based upon performance in UMAT, performance at an interview, academic results and Rural Rating, and will be weighted 15:30:30:25 respectively. Only interviewed applicants are included in the final ranked list. Applicants interviewed for dentistry only can't be included on the medicine ranked list and therefore can't be considered for a place in the medicine course. Likewise if you are interviewed for medicine only, you can't be considered for a place in the dentistry course.

    Indigenous Pathway
    There are alternative pathways available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander applicants. These are available through the Centre for Aboriginal Medical and Dental Health. We encourage students applying for the Direct Pathway to also apply for standard entry through one of the bachelor's degrees. This allows you to apply for the Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Dental Medicine towards the end of your bachelor's degree.
  • Music

    There are a number of ways for you to study Music at UWA, whether you're aiming to be a professional musician or would like to use music as a complement to other studies. There are two majors in music available within UWA's new courses: Music Studies and Music Specialist Studies.

    The most extensive music study program available is to take the Music Specialist Studies major together with the Music Studies major. This will provide you with an in-depth music-focussed degree program, in which you can specialise in musicology, composition or performance. This study path is the equivalent of the former Bachelor of Music (BMus) course, with added practical opportunities and professional skills development. Subject to satisfactory progress, you'll be entitled to individual instrumental/vocal/composition tuition throughout your degree. You need to pass an audition to enter this pathway. If you're applying to study composition, you'll also need to submit a portfolio of original creative works. Use the code UWMUS to apply for Music Specialist Studies together with the Music Studies major.

    If you'd like to combine other studies with music, it's possible to take the Music Studies major alongside other majors. You can take Music Studies as your degree-specific major in the Bachelor of Arts and then have the option of choosing a second major from within the Arts degree or from within the Bachelor of Biomedical Science, Commerce or Science.

    If you take Music Studies as a degree-specific major, you'll receive practical lessons (performance or composition) during your first year and for this you'll need to pass an audition. If you're applying to study composition you'll also need to submit a portfolio of original creative works. Use the code UWMUS to apply for the Music Studies major as your degree-specific major.

    If you take Music Studies as a second major, you don't complete individual lessons in music performance or composition and an audition isn't required. Music Studies is a degree-specific major within the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours), but can be taken as a second major in any other undergraduate degree.

    Some music units, including practical ensembles (Symphony Orchestra, Wind Orchestra, Choir and Jazz Band), as well as popular and world music, are also available as broadening units if you're studying a degree other than the Bachelor of Arts. Some ensembles may require an audition.

    Music auditions
    Obtain an audition form from the UWA School of Music by phone (08) 6488 7835) or download. Details concerning the audition process are also outlined on the website. Submit your completed audition form to the School of Music by Friday 15 September 2017. Contact the School of Music if you're unsure about which music options might be most appropriate for you or if you have any questions about the audition process.

    The duration of the Doctor of Podiatric Medicine is three years full-time; however, students completing the Medical Sciences major will be able to complete the course in two years.

    If you're successful in obtaining a place via one of the Direct Pathways for school leavers, you'll undertake a Bachelor of Arts, Biomedical Science, Commerce or Science and will be guaranteed entry in to the postgraduate degree, provided you achieve a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 5.0 in your bachelor's degree. (A GPA of 5.0 is equivalent to an overall subject average of approximately 60 percent). Students in the Direct Pathway to the Master of Social Work are guaranteed progression upon completion of their undergraduate degree. The offer isn't transferable to another Direct Pathway.

    We encourage students applying for the Direct Pathway to also apply for standard entry through one of the bachelor's degrees. This allows you to apply for the Master of Pharmacy, Doctor of Podiatric Medicine or Master of Social Work towards the end of your bachelor's degree.
