- the equivalent of a UWA Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 5.5 (out of 7.0)*
Applications will be ranked based upon the GPA. Admission will be awarded to the highest ranked applicants who fall within the intake quota for that year.
*All completed tertiary studies will be used when calculating the GPA.
