The University of Western Australia is the State’s premier University of choice for staff and students.
Our excellence in teaching and research is reflected in prestigious international and national award winning staff, including our Nobel Laureate Professor Barry Marshall.
We have strong strategic partnerships with industry, the professions, government and the wider community. The University is home to Australia’s first Confucius Institute, in collaboration with the People’s Republic of China.
Working collaboratively with multiple international institutions in research excellence, we promote staff and student exchanges and share teaching materials and methods.
The University employs more than 3500 staff and has 18,000 students enrolled in campus and offshore programs. We offer broad and balanced coverage of disciplines in the arts, sciences and major professions and continue to attract high-calibre school leavers, and postgraduate students nationally and internationally. A range of commercially orientated professional and technical staff support the University in human resources, finance, information technology and facilities management functions.
