The University of Western Australia


The University of Western Australia (UWA) celebrates more than 100 years of teaching and research excellence, and is proud to be Western Australia’s highest ranked university.

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.
UWA was equal first overall in Australia based on key measures in the Good Universities Guide 2016, including student demand, graduate starting salaries, research intensity and research grants.

Since 2012 UWA has rated in the top one per cent of all universities worldwide in the three major university rankings systems. The University’s ranking of 25th in Life and Agriculture Sciences in the Academic Ranking of World Universities puts it at number one in Australia for this field.

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.
