The University of Western Australia


The University of Western Australia (UWA) is a prestigious and globally-ranked university that has provided an outstanding learning experience since 1911, making it one of Australia’s oldest institutions.

Its picturesque campus is located in the center of Perth, known as the gateway to Asia due to its unique global position. Sharing a time zone with 60% of the world’s population, it’s the ideal location for students to build connections and careers.

From June 2022, UWA College – our new campus-based international pathway center – will provide university preparation programs for international students looking to progress to UWA. They’ll study an academic pathway program and build their language skills to the level required by their chosen degree.
