I have got my WACE results and they are much lower than I expected. I got below 60, is there any pathway I can take?

Curtin University has several options available for applicants who do not meet the minimum entry requirements to apply to Curtin.

For alternative pathways please visit the Admission pathways website.
Other pathways include but are not limited to: Open Universities Australia (OUA) qualifications can enable you to meet the requirements for entry into Curtin. Students who complete two degree level units (minimum 25 credits each unit) with separate evidence of English competence will satisfy the University's minimum entry requirement. Students who complete four degree level units will meet minimum entry and English competency.


The Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) is a nationally recognised set of tests that is offered by the Tertiary Institutions Service Centre (TISC) to help mature-age candidates gain entry to university. Please note: not all courses at Curtin accept the STAT. Please view the "Course Search" section at the TISC website for information on which Curtin courses accept the STAT.
