UWA Learning Centres

UWA Learning Centres – China

In 2020, The University of Western Australia opened its first International Learning Centres to support its students who remained in China and were unable to arrive in Australia for the start of semester 2, 2020.

In 2021, we are pleased to continue supporting our students through the provision of Learning Centres.  Through UWA’s strong collaboration and partnerships with universities in China, these dedicated Learning Centres are available for students enrolled at UWA, but studying online:

  • UWA Offshore Learning Centre @ Nanjing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Tianmuhu
  • UWA Offshore Learning Centre @ Northeast Forestry University, Harbin
  • UWA Offshore Learning Centre @ Southwest University, Beibei Campus, Chongqing
  • UWA Study Centre @ Soochow University, Suzhou NEW

UWA Learning Centres will be able to cater to students from any UWA undergraduate or postgraduate degree course that is 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.

If you are in China, you can view the above video on Tencent. Hear from our students and staff about the online learning experience at UWA.

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 travel to Perth to either continue their UWA studies, or commence their UWA degree, the UWA Learning Centres can provide the experience of studying in a community environment.  We are fortunate to be able to partner with universities in China to use their facilities to support UWA students. 

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.
