What can I do to give myself the best chances of being accepted?

For School Leavers, because some courses are more competitive than others, the higher your Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), the better your chance is of being offered a place at Curtin in your desired course. Achieving the advertised Minimum ATAR does not guarantee you a place in your desired course.

If you’re a Curtin student intending to switch to a competitive course with limited places available, your application can be subject to your course weighted average (CWA) from previous studies and most recent semester weighted average (SWA). The exact criteria will be determined by the assessing School, Course Switching criteria for most courses can be found by Searching Offerings for your desired course and selecting the Admission Criteria tab.

Some courses also require you to satisfy specific prerequisites. Research the requirements for the course you are interested in by Searching Offerings for your desired course and taking note of English requirements, prerequisites and any additional application requirements.
