Credit / Advanced Standing for previous studies

Can I get credit at UWA for my previous studies at another university?

The University of Western Australia assesses applications for credit (also called advanced standing) on a case-by-case basis. An application for credit can be submitted to your Student Advising Office upon acceptance of an offer of study at UWA.

The credit granted will be largely dependent on the overlap between your previous units, and the units in your course at UWA. To apply, complete an Application for credit transfer, advanced standing and recognition of prior learning form and submit it to your Student Advising Office.

If you're applying for credit from an external university or institution you’ll need to attach an original or full colour scan of your academic transcript to your application.
Note: include copies of the unit outlines or summaries in your application if they are available to you.

Your Student Advising Office will notify you of the outcome of your application via your UWA student email account.
