Answer ID 1531 | Last updated on 13/07/2022 12.09 PM
The Academic English and Study Skills Bridging Course builds upon English for Academic Purposes.
While English for Academic Purposes introduces academic study skills, students in the Bridging Course apply those skills in academic situations.
The Bridging Course has been designed for international students who wish to study at UWA but do not have the required level of English language proficiency. The program is also suitable for students with unconditional entry into UWA who would like to further develop their language ability and confidence before commencing their tertiary studies.
A 70% pass in the Bridging Course meets the University's English language requirement for most under-and post-graduate courses that require an IELTS of 6.5 with no band below 6.0. Students who study English for Academic Purposes must also sit an IELTS or TOEFL examination to meet the university's English language requirement for entry into their degree program.
