About Canning College
Canning College has been preparing students to achieve entry into Australia’s leading universities since 1982. As a specialist international education institution, it has established an excellent reputation for providing local and overseas students with the personal and academic development and pathways required to succeed in tertiary studies.
In the five years from 2019, the College’s expert staff focused exclusively on providing pathway-to-university programs for international students. From 2024, while Canning College continues to focus on international students, the College resumes the enrolment of local (domestic) students seeking entry to university primarily through WA Certificate of Education ATAR courses. Local students may commence in Year 10, Year 11 or Year 12 as compulsory school-age or mature age students.
Flexible entry points into Canning College’s academic pathway programs allow international students to start studying in January, April and mid-year, which gives them the opportunity to enter university degree courses sooner. College staff are experienced in providing care, support and academic guidance to students to help them prepare better for the rigours of tertiary studies.
Local and international students may enrol in Canning College’s Year 10 program, and Year 11 and Year 12 Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) ATAR programs. International students can also seek to complete the Certificate IV in University Access Program, Diploma of Commerce, and the Western Australian Universities’ Foundation Program (WAUFP). The WAUFP is also available to eligible domestic students who have completed fewer than two years of their secondary school education in Australia.
While Canning College has a special relationship with the universities of Perth, College graduates can enrol at all universities across Australia and at many universities across the world. Canning graduates have studied at universities in Australia, England, Ireland, America, Canada, Germany, New Zealand, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Korea and Singapore.
Canning College students pursue a wide range of degree courses including engineering, medicine, physiotherapy, education, law, pharmacy, nursing and computing.
