Akash MishraMaster of Business Information and Logistics Management
UWA is the best university in WA. The master’s framework is very practical and prepares you for advanced business and career exposure. The faculty members, beautiful campus and friendly environment make studying here an amazing experience. I chose to study the Master of Business Information and Logistics Management because it is industry relevant and combines both business and IT. This course suits someone who wants to pursue a career in something like business analytics or digital marketing.
Alexander FloydData Science major
The facilities and the staff here are world-class, with most of my lecturers and tutors holding PhDs, so I am constantly inspired. The projects and assignments are very relevant and the skills I am learning are easily transferable. The social life on campus is fantastic with all the clubs very welcoming and very active. As a mature-age student, I thought I might be too old to socialise, but this most definitely isn’t the case.
Alistair RyanHuman Geography and Planning major
UWA has always been recognised as Western Australia’s premier university. Having achieved well in high school, I wanted to attend an institution that matched the ability I had. Furthermore, testimonials from tutors and relatives about UWA’s culture only pushed me to believe that it would be the most enjoyable university to attend – which so far, I believe has rung true.
Allira HanczakowskiMaster of Translation Studies
The opportunity to undertake a six-week internship in Italy was an extremely valuable aspect of the course, enriching my translating skills and giving me an insight into the life of a translator. My ultimate goal is to work in the field of literary translation. I absolutely love the challenge of transferring messages, ideas and emotions across languages. Learning how to be the bridge that facilitates cross-cultural communication and breaks down language barriers is truly an art.
"I started studying straight after high school in 2016. My undergraduate majors were in Neuroscience and Archaeology, and in 2019 I completed an Honours in Archaeology.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at UWA, and have especially fond memories of travelling for both archaeological field trips and debating competitions. I studied neuroscience after falling in love with it during the Brain Bee at high school, organised by Jenny Rodger at UWA.
My second major became archaeology after a very interesting first year class with Sven Ouzman, where I ended up sourcing and firing my own clay tablet for an assignment. I was lucky enough to get a job at the Museum straight after graduation.
I have remained connected to UWA since then, especially as I finish publishing work that I completed during my Honours year."

Amy McDermottMaster of Studies
I have loved the class discussions in our seminars - I really feel academically engaged in the learning process. The lecturers are so knowledgeable and also the mix of world and life experience of my classmates has created a real depth of analysis and discussion.
