UWA Learning Centres
UWA Learning Centres – China
The University of Western Australia is opening its first International Learning Centres to support its students who remain in China and are unable to arrive in Australia for the start of semester 2, 2020.
Collaborating with partner universities in China, dedicated learning spaces will be made available for students who are enrolled at UWA, but currently studying online.
The two Learning Centres are located at the following universities:
- Southwest University in Chongqing
- Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics in Nanjing
Both Centres will be able to cater to students from all UWA undergraduate or postgraduate degree courses that are available online.
Students attending a UWA Learning Centre will receive additional support, including academic tutoring, peer support and a dedicated virtual student experience program to keep students connected to the UWA community until they can join us at the Perth campus.
Benefits to attending a UWA Learning Centre
Overall UWA students in China have adapted well to the transition of online learning brought on by the COVID-19 crisis, but we know many are missing the experience of studying on a university campus.
Until students can return to Perth, or even commence their studies at our Perth campus for the first time, the UWA Learning Centres can provide the experience of studying in a community environment. We are proud to collaborate with our partner universities to use their facilities to support UWA students in China.
In addition to the campus experience, students will benefit from complimentary academic and peer support, English language support and an exciting virtual engagement program bringing much of the Perth campus experience and support services directly to students.
