Academic Entry Requirements

Admission to Western Sydney University is highly competitive and is on the basis of academic merit. International students are required to meet the same standards as Australian residents. The following qualifications are the minimum acceptable levels for eligibility and you should not assume that because you have met the minimum level you will be offered a place at the university. It should be noted that certain courses may have special or higher entry requirements.

These are general guides only. Refer to the online handbook for the specific requirements of each degree program. Some programs may also require evidence of relevant work experience.

 

English Language Entry Requirements

All international students must have a good command of written and spoken English.

If your first language is English or if you can pro

vide satisfactory evidence that English was the medium of instruction in your secondary or tertiary studies (secondary or tertiary studies completed within 2 years at the time of your commencement at Western Sydney University), you may be considered as meeting the requirement of proficiency in English.

If English is not your first language or was not the medium of instruction in your secondary or tertiary studies, you are required to demonstrate your proficiency in the English language by achieving a prescribed level in an approved English examination or test before you can receive a full offer of a place.

Your English language proficiency test must be no

more than two years old at the time of your commencement at Western Sydney University.
