Congratulations! You have received your offer, signed your acceptance and received your Confirmation of Enrolment - now it's time to prepare for your journey to Perth.

This Pre-departure section will help you to organise your departure, your arrival in Perth and settling into the University.

  • The Semester One 2016 International Undergraduate and Postgraduate Welcomes will take place on Monday, 22 February 2016.
