Domestic students

Congratulations on your offer to study at UOW. Follow the steps below to enrol in your course.

  1. Accept your offer

    To take your place at UOW you will need to accept your offer.

  2. Prepare for enrolment

    Choosing your subjects - Check out our first year enrolment guides (undergraduate students) or the Course handbook (postgraduate students). These will help you with choosing your subjects.

    Get your photo ready
    - You will be asked to upload a photo for your student ID card. Make sure your photo meets our requirements.

    Understand your fee options - Eligible domestic students may have the option to pay their fees upfront or defer the payment. A deferred payment is commonly referred to as the HECS option (Higher Education Contribution Scheme). If you are deferring your fees, you will need to provide your tax file number (TFN) during enrolment. If you do not have a TFN you must apply for one immediately as it will take 28 days for a TFN to be issued by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). It is a mandatory requirement that your personal details at UOW match with your details recorded at the ATO in order for you to access a HELP loan. See our fees website for more information on your options.
