Determining your eligibility for a Commonwealth Supported Place

Am I eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place?

The University of Western Australia offers a limited number of Commonwealth supported places to commencing students.

To be eligible for a Commonwealth Supported Place you must fulfil one of the following criteria:

  • An Australian citizen
  • An Australian Permanent resident
  • A New Zealand citizen who will reside in Australia for the duration of your course
  • A holder of a permanent humanitarian visa

You must also:

  • Submit a 'Request for Commonwealth support and HECS-HELP' form (eCAF) before the earliest unit census date of your course of study. You will normally be required to complete an eCAF as part of the on-line enrolment process on studentConnect.

Further information about being eligible for Commonwealth supported places is available from the Study Assist website.
