Applying for study abroad or student exchange to UWA
How do I apply for study abroad or student exchange to UWA?
If you are applying as an exchange student you must first be nominated by your university.
Check to see if your university is an exchange partner institution with UWA. Once UWA has received your nomination, you will receive an email from the Global Learning Office asking you to log in, and complete our online application form.
Applying for a Study Abroad program
You can apply direct to UWA by using the apply online gateway. If your home university has no relationship with UWA, you will be required to complete the Home University Approval Form.
Applying Through a Third Party
You can apply through a third party provider if UWA has an arrangement with your university where tuition and OSHC fees invoices are sent to the university. Third party providers include:
- IFSA Butler University, CEA Arcadia University, SUNY Brockport, Australearn
- UWA authorised representatives throughout the world. UWA maintains a database of agents that you can use to locate an agent in your country
- Your home university if UWA has an agreement with you university where tuition and other fees are invoiced to your home county
If you are applying through a third party you must first be nominated by a Third Party Provider, your home university or a UWA authorised agent or representative. Once this nomination has been received, you will be sent an email from the UWA Global Learning Office with advice on how to apply online. Your application should be accompanied by:
- Your original academic transcript (or a certified copy)
- Evidence of English language competency (where appropriate)
- A certified copy of your passport
Where documents are not in English, a certified English translation must be enclosed with your application.
Notification of decision
Assessment of a complete application usually takes between one and three weeks. You will receive formal notification by airmail. Earlier notification is possible if an email address is provided.
Your Letter of Offer will grant admission to UWA subject to satisfying the documentation requirements. You will be asked to complete a Proposed Study List which will go to faculty, who will approve individual units of study.
