Including the UWA Careers Fair on 19 March! You can register for these events and search for employment opportunities via the UWA student jobs board, UniHub.
Week 3 - SOCIALConnect
A great goal for this week is to make new social connections! Meet other students, join Guild clubs and societies, join in on the great activities offered by UWA Sport, come along to off campus excursions and discover the various cultural events and activities on campus.
The Guild has more than 160 clubs at UWA, covering just about every interest: course-related, cultural, political, religious, hobby-related and more. They’ll be taking over Oak Lawn on Tuesday 12 March for Guild Club Carnival so come down and find out what they do, get tickets to upcoming events, join clubs and societies and get involved with the best campus culture in the country.
Week 6 - GLOBAL AND CULTURALConnect

UWA provides you with opportunities to undertake exchange and short-term programs with international universities through the UWA Global Learning Office. These programs are an incredible experience, providing you with the opportunity to see the world and broaden your employment prospects. There are scholarships and loans to help you get there. This week there will be a mini Global Study Fair on 12 March where you can ask questions to returned exchange students.
