About Tuart College:
Tuart College, located in Western Australia’s capital city of Perth, is a senior college within the Western Australian Government’s Department of Education and Training. The College has 20 years experience educating international students with approximately 80% gaining university entrance each year
The College offers two pre-university entrance programs -- the WA Universities’ Foundation Program (WAUFP) and the Tertiary Entrance Examination (TEE) Program. Both are Year 12 programs providing university entrance or matriculation. At TuartCollege, our international students study in classes alongside our local students who make up 85% of our student population.
WAUFP has advantages being designed for international students. A pass mark in WAUFP guarantees a place at a Western Australian university and is accepted by all the universities in Perth and is widely recognized across Australia, including Australia’s prestigious “group of 8” universities.
English is compulsory for both programs. In WAUFP, students study English Language and Australian Cultural Studies (ELACS) plus 3 or 4 other subjects selected from Accounting, Applicable Mathematics, Calculus, Chemistry, Discrete Mathematics, Economics, History, Human Biology, Information Systems, Physical Science and Physics. Students in the TEE program study English as a Second Language (ESL) plus 4 or 5 other subjects selected from a larger list on offer.
Tuart also offers a range of Bridging courses, including a formal Year 11 course, to let international students upgrade their standard of English and/or their background in academic subjects.
Tuart offers flexible starting dates.
Students must pay a $500 refundable bond plus the government's required medical insurance.
