It is a School Curriculum and Standards Authority requirement that all students wishing to study a WACE language course obtain permission to enrol in that course in the year prior to first enrolment in the course. Second language courses are for students who have typically learnt everything they know about a second language and its culture through classroom teaching in Australia.

Applications for permission to enrol in 2024 were due to SCSA by 25th August 2023. Information about these requirements is available on the SCSA website . SIDE is required to confirm eligibility before enrolling students in WACE language courses.
