The University of Western Australia

Located on the banks of the Swan River in Perth, the capital city of Australia's largest State - Western Australia - The University of Western Australia is the State's oldest and most prestigious university.

Since its establishment in 1911, The University of Western Australia (UWA) has earned an international reputation for excellence and enterprise. It is characterised by the quality of its education across a broad and balanced range of disciplines in the arts, sciences and major professions. Beyond excellence in teaching and research, UWA is committed towards developing new initiatives and maintaining strong links with industry.

UWA is the only Western Australian university to belong to the 'Group of Eight', a collaboration of the top research universities in Australia. Emphasis on research and research training is a defining characteristic of The University of Western Australia and as such it attracts researchers of world standing across the range of disciplines taught, including international leaders in many diverse fields.

The high calibre teaching staff, state-of-the-art research facilities, well-equipped lecture theatres and laboratories combined with a superb range of arts venues, provide a learning environment that stimulates both creativity and innovation. From its extensive art collection to its wealth of sporting facilities, the University seeks to meet the cultural and recreational needs of students, staff and the broader community.

Research Strength

As a result of its strong research culture, the University recently attracted more competitive research funding - on a per capita basis of staff involved in research - than any other Australian university. Annually the University receives in excess of $71 million of external research income, expends over $117 million on research and graduates over 250 higher degree by research students, mostly doctorates.
The University has 80 research centres, including the Crime Research Centre, the Centre for Forensic Science, the Centre for Water Research and the Centre for Oil and Gas.

Internationalisation

The University of Western Australia is strongly committed to internationalisation of all aspects of its activities, and takes seriously its responsibility to prepare its graduates to be active and critical participants in society.

UWA has formal agreements with 44 international institutions, promoting staff and student exchanges, collaborative research and exchange of teaching materials and methods. The University also teaches several of its programmes offshore, in Singapore, Indonesia and Hong Kong. Trans-national programmes facilitate the development of UWA as a genuinely international university, and help to ensure that our students, whether at home or offshore, become world citizens.

By being part of a global learning network, strong links are developed with other nations and cultures. As such, 'internationalisation' shapes the nature of our graduates and their careers. A capacity to draw from an educational experience that has many international dimensions will be of significant value to UWA graduates in the workplace. UWA graduates will be citizens of the globe.

In 2003, the University has 2,785 international students from nearly 80 countries around the world studying onshore and overseas, part of a total student body of 16,341.

Undergraduate and Postgraduate Study

UWA's wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses are continually being developed to ensure they reflect the needs of a changing world, and accommodate new research and employment opportunities.

Courses include agriculture, architecture/environmental design, arts, biomedical science, biotechnology, commerce, communication studies, computer science, dentistry, economics, education, engineering, fine arts, health science, horticulture and viticulture, information technology, landscape architecture, law, medicine, music, neuroscience, psychology, social work and sports science.

A range of options are available for double degrees in the areas of arts, asian studies, law, education, commerce, communication studies, economics, engineering, science, and health science. Mid year entry is available in most courses offered.

Support for Students

The extensive student support offered by UWA complements the university experience and contributes directly to the welfare and well-being of the students. Services available include:

  • Personal, educational and vocational counselling, as well as short courses in learning and research skills, academic writing and assignment writing
  • A careers centre
  • A medical centre
  • A housing office
  • a mentor scheme where new students are matched with a senior student for support and guidance
  • Religious groups and facilities - UWA has a Muslim prayer room and wash facilities on campus

    Learning support on campus is excellent with extensive study space in the University's many libraries and extremely good computing services where students have remote access to the university network.

    There are five residential colleges on campus which provide a caring and secure environment ideal for students living away from home for the first time.

    Ongoing support for overseas students includes pre-departure seminars, airport reception and transfer to accommodation, assistance in arranging temporary accommodation, an orientation programme and ongoing welfare support.
