Admissions requirements for international students applying for Study Abroad and Student Exchange

What are the admissions requirements for incoming students to apply for Study Abroad or Student Exchange at UWA?

To study at UWA as a study abroad or exchange student you should normally:

  • Have completed one semester of tertiary study at a recognised institution
  • Nomination from your home university to participate in the UWA Study Abroad or if no formal agreement exists, by completing the Home University Authorisation form
  • Be in Good Academic Standing at your home university
  • Meet UWA’s English language competency requirements at the time of application  

You'll need to have the appropriate prerequisites for the units that you wish to study at UWA. Generally, first year courses can be taken with no background, while higher level courses can only be taken if you have the appropriate prerequisites or similar courses. Check the units you are interested in taking for individual prerequisites.

If you are from a non-English speaking background you will also need to meet the University's official English language requirements.
