UWA students

Further information

Current UWA students can apply to study cross-institutionally at another Australian tertiary institution (including an offshore campus) for credit towards their UWA degree course.

If your application is approved by both institutions, upon successful completion you will be granted credit for these units towards your award course at UWA.

For more information refer to the University Policy on: Cross-institutional enrolment for students undertaking an award course at The University of Western Australia.

Application with UWA

To study cross-institutionally you must submit the Cross-institutional Enrolment Approval Form for UWA Students (below) and the unit descriptions or outline/s (from the Host Institution) to your UWA Student Advising Office.

Application periods

  • Semester One:  12 November 2018 - 9 March 2019
  • Semester Two:  12 November 2018 - 10 August 2019

Enrolment at UWA

Once your cross-institutional study is approved, you will need to request a Change of Enrolment form from your Student Advising Office in order to add the cross-institutional units to your UWA enrolment.

Remember, cross-insitutional units cannot be added online via studentConnect.

Application with your Host Institution

Once permission has been granted by UWA, you must apply to the Host University. Leave plenty of time to deal with administration at both universities and check the closing date for your application at the Host University. It is your responsibility to maintain an enrolment at both UWA and the Host Institution.


Your Host Institution determines your student contribution or fee liability for your cross-institutional units and you pay Fees to your Host Institution.

International students

If you are an international student, you may be able to undertake cross-institutional study at another Australian institution. Make sure that you check with the Host Institution that they accept international cross-institutional students and the fees involved. Contact UWA Student Administration for details.


On completion of your cross-institutional study it is your responsibility to provide your UWA Student Advising Office with a formal Academic Transcript from your Host Institution, showing your results. Your Student Advising Office will then authorise the credit to be granted towards your UWA award course.
