Choose your university

When international students successfully complete a Canning College program, it opens up a world of university opportunities. While some students choose to continue their studies elsewhere in Australia or even overseas, many stay in Western Australia.

We have long-standing partnerships with Western Australia’s five universities – The University of Western Australia, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University and the University of Notre Dame. Many of our students also choose to enrol in other Australian universities such as the University of Melbourne, the University of Sydney and the University of Queensland.

Applications and scholarships 

High-performing students may be eligible for Canning College scholarships, including up to 40% off tuition fees.

We make it easier to study with us by allowing students to use their latest academic results, including preliminary or forecast results, to apply for a place in the WA Universities’ Foundation Program.

Our goal is to give students a great education by providing care and support at every stage of their journey. Our approach makes it easier for students to focus on their studies and achieve their academic and career goals.

Thousands of students have completed the WA Universities’ Foundation Program on their way to top universities, including education institutions in Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight.

The Foundation Program gives students excellent academic preparation for university studies, while our staff make sure students feel positive about the transition into universities.
