Being granted PR status after you have applied to study at UWA as an international student

What will happen if I am granted Permanent Residency after I have applied to study at UWA as an international student?

If you are granted Permanent Residency after you have applied to UWA but before you have commenced studies, your International Offer becomes void, and you will need to re-apply as a Domestic Student - Application fees may apply.

If you are granted Permanent Residency after you have commenced studies and before the census date of the Semester in which you are enrolled you must provide evidence of your visa subclass to Student Administration. You will keep your place as a student* and can request a refund for International Fees paid in that Semester.

If you are granted Permanent Residency after you have commenced studies and after the census date  of the Semester in which you are enrolled, you must provide evidence to Student Administration. You will keep your place as a student* and although you are unable to claim a refund for fees paid so far, you will be liable for the Domestic Fee rate thereafter.

Please ensure you request instructions from Student Administration regarding your obligations as a Domestic Student.

*Note: courses which have strict quotas for International students may no longer have a place for you in that program. Such courses include the Doctor of Medicine, the Doctor of Dental Medicine, the Master of Pharmacy and the Master of Clinical Audiology.
