Student Equity

UWA is committed to continuing to widen participation and support students from diverse backgrounds in higher education. The Student Equity team sits within the Student Life portfolio, and our layered and long-term approach includes initiatives embedded across at all stages of the student life cycle.

Our programs provide broad-based, early intervention outreach and an admission entry pathway for students of high potential but limited means and opportunity.

We would like to thank our supporters: the Alcoa Foundation, Rio Tinto, Monadelphous, Babcock, Newmont, ATCO, Firecroft Australia and the many kind individuals who share our belief in the transformative power of education.
