The University of Western Australia
Established in 1911, the University's ground-breaking research, quality academic staff and state-of-the-art facilities combine to offer a vibrant student experience.
As Western Australia's premier university, UWA was equal first overall in Australia based on key measures in the Good Universities Guide 2013 including graduate starting salaries, employment prospects, research grants, research intensity and student demand.
The University of Western Australia ranks 91th in the world in the highly respected Shanghai-Jiao Tong University's Academic Ranking of World Universities, and has the highest ranking of any Australian universities in the field of life and agriculture sciences.
UWA is the only Western Australian university to belong to the Group of Eight – a coalition of the top research universities in Australia – and it is one of only two Australian members of the Worldwide Universities Network, a partnership of 18 research-led universities from Europe, Africa, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific. The University is also a foundation member of the Matariki Network of high quality, research-intensive universities with a particular focus on student experience.
The University thinks globally in preparing its students to be citizens of the world. Formal agreements with nearly 230 institutions around the world provide a spirit of internationalism and these partnerships promote a lively exchange of staff, students, knowledge and ideas.
The University welcomes nearly 5000 international students to its academic programs. Our Crawley campus is a multi-cultural and multi-faith community which includes students from 100 different countries.
By reaching out to the world, UWA continues to enhance its reputation as a genuinely international university that is helping our students reach their goals and dreams.
