If you are selected to go to UWA, keep in mind that you will have to meet the English Language Requirements. You don’t have to worry about this until after you have been selected by UU. Non native speakers of English will need to provide an IELTS, TOEFL or Cambridge test result. The University’s English Language Requirements will ONLY be waived if you have a Dutch VWO diploma with minimum grade 8: no exceptions will be made.
