How many WACE ATAR courses do school leavers have to study to gain entry into Curtin?

You need at least four scaled scores for an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) to be calculated. The ATAR is calculated from your Tertiary Entrance Aggregate (TEA). 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.

Please note, for applicants whose ATAR does not meet the admissions criteria for a limited number of courses, Curtin University has implemented the Access Curtin pathway for the Semester 1 2021 intake. This new pathway makes it possible for applicants to still be considered for a place, if they meet the criteria for this pathway. 

Please visit the Access Curtin Page to find out more.
