With the return to baseline public health measures in Western Australia, The University of Western Australia 's (UWA) Centre for English Language Teaching (CELT) will continue to closely monitor developments surrounding COVID-19 and its impact on our community.

Aligned with State and Federal government public health advice, UWA continues to encourage its community to get fully vaccinated, including having a booster dose when eligible.

The Centre will continue to provide regular updates to the UWA CELT community.

Information surrounding COVID-19 health advice is dynamically changing and the information on this page may change at short notice.

Students travelling to UWA CELT in 2022 

UWA CELT is delighted to be welcoming our students back to Perth!

It is important that you keep up-to-date with the latest travel and quarantine advice by the WA Government and Study Perth.

All international travellers to Western Australia must:

  • meet the Commonwealth Government requirements to enter Australia, including vaccination and testing requirements
  • be fully vaccinated under the Commonwealth Government requirements, if eligible

Unvaccinated returning Australians will be required to complete seven days of hotel quarantine.

Bridging Course students

UWA CELT has recommenced face-to-face classes for Bridging Course students, while sustaining the online study mode. We expect to continue to deliver the Bridging Course both in person and online for the remainder of 2022.

The online and face-to-face programs will deliver the same outcomes. Both programs will provide the same tuition hours (20-hours per week for Module 1, and 25-hours per week for Module 2). The Bridging Course will run in live time for those students that study online. 

The online and face-to-face programs will provide a direct English pathway to most degree programs at UWA; A 70 percent pass will meet the English competency requirement for most undergraduate and postgraduate courses that require an IELTS of 6.5 with no band below 6.0 (some courses have higher English requirements). Results from the online Bridging Course will be valid for admissions purposes at UWA for two years.

The cut-off for the each intake of the Bridging Course is one week prior to the start of the program. 

ELICOS students

UWA CELT has resumed face-to-face classes. Students enrolling in Language and Communication Essentials, English for Academic Purposes and IELTS Examination Preparation will join classes at our campus in Perth.

We strongly encourage students to join us in Perth for Language and Communication Essentials in the face-to-face mode. Over the coming few months, if UWA College pathway students are unable to arrive in Perth in time we will make arrangements for online delivery where needed, though face-to-face in Perth is preferred.
