Resources for teachers and career advisers
From about Year 10, you may find students are increasingly likely to ask about their future career paths and the choices available to them for continuing education after high school.
Here you’ll find all the information you need to help them learn more about life and study at UWA.
UWA course model
Our course structure is exclusive to UWA and is benchmarked against some of the world’s leading universities, giving our students a competitive edge when they enter the workforce. Students can combine two majors into one degree no matter how different they are, which means they can combine their interests and career goals, without losing time or money.
For example, if a student is career-oriented and wants to study Engineering they can also combine their Engineering studies with a Finance major. When they graduate, they are not limited to a career in just the engineering field, but one that has multiple career paths in commerce-related fields, which gives our graduates an edge to be adaptable in a progressive job market.
3 + 2 model
Studying a three-year undergraduate degree paired with a two-year postgraduate degree means that a student will graduate with a higher qualification than a double degree (taught at other universities) and in some cases will do so in less time than a double degree takes to finish.

At UWA, we attract students with high aspirations. We aim to meet these aspirations of our students by being a research-rich university and offering our students:
- integrated learning and a balanced learning environment of theory and practical learning
- how to apply research to their life and community
- how to apply critical thinking
- the chance to learn with thought-leaders with deep expertise, not just from them
At UWA, you'll not only study towards a degree but have the opportunity to gain valuable experience towards your future career.
- Mentoring: connect with an industry professional for one-on-one advice.
- Not-for-credit experience: Our network of industry placements allows you to find uncredited placements.
- Placement for credit: For-credit placements or practicums are arranged as part of your degree.
Advising on prerequisites
English is a prerequisite to tertiary study at UWA, and some courses also require a certain level of mathematics. For all other courses where a prerequisite is indicated, students can still enrol if the subject has not been completed, but they will need to complete a bridging unit within their degree.
