Welcome to Western.


Welcome to Western Sydney University.

For local students (Australian and New Zealand citizens or Permanent Residents of Australia), there are four steps to enrolment. For international students, there are three enrolment steps. 

We'll guide you through the process.

Enrolment Steps.

Do we have your correct name, postal and term addresses, phone and emergency contacts? 

There are two surveys and a declaration that all students must complete. Some courses and units that include clinical, practical or work placements may also have special requirements such as a working with children check or a first aid qualification.

Be aware that these may make take some time, so please get on to them straight away.    

There are two government forms relating to fees.

The Commonwealth Assistance Form (eCAF) relates to your tuition fees the cost of the course you enrol in.

The Student Services & Amenities Fee (SSAF) contributes to amenities and non-academic services on campus.

An optional third form allows you to apply for public transport concessions.

International students do not need to complete these forms  

This is the most complex part of enrolment. Each course is different, so you'll need to thoroughly read and understand your course's section in the Western Sydney University handbook.

Most courses also have compulsory Student Information sessions for new students – face to face events where you can get personalised feedback about your enrolment, course expectations and advanced standing for previous study you’ve completed.
