Refer to the FAQs for information that will help you design your program of study at UWA.

Choose a discipline that interests you and visit the UWA Handbook to see what units are on offer and access full unit descriptions.

Arts Practicum

In an Arts Practicum unit, you will undertake 100 hours of work experience in a host organisation relevant to your interests, skills and studies. This is not a work experience placement where you just make coffees – you will be assigned a real project to work on, giving you real experience.

Arts Practicum will help you identify and develop the skills you will need to gain employment after university – and you will have a lot of fun while you’re at it!

Follow the link below to find full details of the program.

English Language and Academic Communication

If you are worried about surviving classes in an English-speaking university environment, the units English Language and Academic Communication I & II are for you! You can choose to take just one unit, do them both at the same time or do them one after the other.

In class, you will develop the skills you need in order to be a confident student here in Australia, such as writing research reports and giving presentations.

Previous students have found these units enjoyable, useful, and a great way to make friends!
