UWSCollege offers pathways to the University of Western Sydney (UWS) for students who may not have qualified for direct entry or for those seeking additional support and preparation before moving on to university studies.
Equivalent to the first year of university
At UWSCollege(opens in new window), you will complete the same units that first-year students complete at UWS.
This means that, when you successfully complete your diploma, you automatically receive one year advanced standing and are guaranteed a place in the corresponding bachelor's degree at UWS.
We offer diploma pathways to UWS in the following areas:
Our Diploma Program is full-time and offered in two modes: Standard Program and Fast Track Program.
Duration — 12 months
This is studied over three terms, giving you a full university year to complete your course.
Fast Track Program
Duration — 8 months
Students who complete a University Foundation Studies course with a Grade Point Average of 6.0 or higher will be eligible for the Fast Track Program.
This is studied over two terms, allowing you to complete the equivalent of one university year in eight months.
UWSCollege and UWS
UWS licences UWSCollege to manage and teach the Diploma Program, so students who study our Diploma Program are UWS students.
