  2. Return any relevant documents.
    For block study mode courses, this includes an application form, ABSTUDY form and letter of support from employer or volunteer coordinator if applicable.
  3. Attend any required entry assessment workshops and information session.
    If you wish to enrol in a block or enabling course, you must attend an entry assessment workshop. At your workshop you’ll sit a general admission assessment, and have the opportunity to talk to staff about courses, support services and pathways available at CAS.

Block study mode admission workshops

Entry assessment workshops are usually held between October and January the year before each university year begins. Enabling course workshops are usually held at CAS in Perth, and block study course workshops are usually held at CAS as well as an interstate location such as Darwin and Cairns. Travel and accommodation support may be available. To ensure your placement at one of these workshops, submit your application by September/October the preceding year. If you’re travelling, you’ll need to return a Request to Travel form as part of your application.
