How many WACE ATAR courses do mature age students have to study to gain entry into Curtin?

Mature age applicants are required to complete a minimum of two Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) ATAR courses in the same year to obtain an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR)/Selection Rank. Please check unacceptable course combinations on the TISC website.

Applicants will also need to satisfy English competency and any prerequisites or special requirements necessary for entry to particular courses. The TISC website provides specific course information and entry requirements, including indicative ATAR score, prerequisites, for all courses offered at the University.

Mature age applicants who wish to apply to study the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery are advised that they are required to study four WACE ATAR courses to be eligible. Applicants applying on the basis of fewer than four courses will not be considered for this course. It is also important to note that mature age applicants should not possess a tertiary record if they're looking to apply by completing four ATAR courses. For further information, please visit the Bachelor of Medicine, Bachelor of Surgery application requirements webpage.
