Program Overview

One of Australia's best and most prestigious universities, The University of Western Australia (UWA) is highly ranked internationally and is the only Western Australian university to belong to the Group of Eight (Go8) – a coalition of the top research universities in 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.  The University hosts 20,000 students each year with more than 4,500 international students from 90 different countries on the multi-cultural Crawley campus.  Adjacent to the Swan River, the UWA Crawley Campus is among the most picturesque campuses in Australia with its grand sandstone and terracotta buildings sitting amongst elegant gardens. The nine different academic colleges include Architecture, Landscape & Visual Arts, Arts (including humanities), Business, Education, Engineering, Computing and Mathematics, Law, Life & Physical Sciences, Medicine, Dentistry & Health Sciences, and Natural & Agricultural Sciences.  Apart from academics, UWA has excellent students support and services, which is particularly highlighted through the Student Guild, a student representative body hosting 13,000 members and over 80 student clubs.
