Enter a university abroad

Bachelor degree at UWS

In Australia, school education lasts longer than 11 years, so it is not possible to enroll in a bachelor's program immediately after school. First, you need to eliminate the academic difference with the help of one of the preparatory programs (A-Levels, IB, Foundation, etc.). The second option is to study for a year at a university in your native country. Before applying to the university, you need to pass an exam for knowledge of the English language. The university accepts the results of IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. Applicants will need a subject exam — A-Level or SAT. Additionally, upon admission, an International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma can be accepted. UWS also provides online undergraduate programs.

Master's degree at UWS

When considering candidates for master's programs, the admission committee of the university pays attention to the student's academic performance during the undergraduate program. In order to enroll at UWS for a master's program, you will have to confirm knowledge of the English language. You can do this by passing the exam — IELTS, PTE or TOEFL. There is an opportunity for admission to online master's programs at UWS.

What to do after graduation

In Australia, you can stay for a period of 1.5 to 4 years after graduation. To do this, you must obtain a graduate visa — it allows you to work in the country without changing your visa to a work one. Graduates of UWS are in demand in the labor market, as the reputation of the educational institution among employers is quite high according to the results of the QS world ranking. Look for more immigration options in our article.
