Applying to study with us is easy. The subjects you complete in year 11 and 12 determine whether you're an ATAR student or non-ATAR student and this determines the application process you'll need to follow.

You will need to ensure you have met our minimum requirements before you apply. These include, but are not limited to:

  • English competency
  • Satisfying the requirements of the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE)
  • Any subject prerequisites for the course you intend to apply for

We haven’t finalised details for 2016 entry just yet, but feel free to check out our 2014 application details, below, to find out what's involved.
