Established in 1911, UWA is recognised internationally as a top 100 research-intensive university. The beautiful Perth campus sits adjacent to the Swan River and is among the most picturesque in the nation with grand sandstone and terracotta buildings among elegant heritage-listed gardens. The campus is also just 10 minutes from the city centre and close to many stunning beaches.

UWA hosts more than 24,000 students and we have welcomed more than 5,000 international students in our academic programs, and our Perth campus is a multicultural, multi-faith community that includes students from more than 100 countries.

Our innovative and flexible course structure is based on a global model that will prepare you to meet the challenges of our rapidly changing world and maximise your career options. The choice of more than 65 majors also means you can explore your interests and discover your passions before finalising a study pathway.

UWA is recognised internationally as ranking 91st in the Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) for 2017. UWA staff members have won many awards for teaching and research, notable among these are Professor Barry Marshall and Emeritus Professor Robin Warren who were awarded the 2005 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of the bacterium Helicobacter and its role in gastritis and peptic ulcer disease.

UWA is the only Western Australian university in the Group of Eight – a coalition of the top research universities in Australia—and is one of only two Australian members of the Worldwide Universities Network, a partnership of 18 research-led universities. We’re also a foundation member of the Matariki Network of high-quality, research-intensive universities with a particular focus on student experience.
