Leverage our innovative, research-based and industry-integrated degrees to become the university of first choice
We will be the first-choice university for students from the Indian Ocean Rim and the world who want an unparalleled depth and breadth of education and rewarding, industry-integrated learning opportunities.
Tailored degrees, centred on a major area of interest or expertise and complemented by a curated suite of broadening units that provide cross-disciplinary skills and research capabilities will offer a unique education experience. Broadening units will offer cognate study, advanced interdisciplinary study and experience-based learning, framed by the Grand Challenges.
We will create accomplished and global leaders by offering international and real-world experiences to every student, including work-based learning opportunities, internships and service learning. Our extensive global partnerships will create huge potential for students to have meaningful overseas experiences.
We will lead the region in a curriculum connected to Indigenous languages, culture and knowledge, and to our place in the local and global community, ensuring graduates can lead culturally respectful careers.
New opportunities in teaching methods and technology will open up opportunities for students outside Perth to have a UWA education experience. Our unique campus and digital environments will offer world-leading on-campus and online learning, adaptable to educational needs and lifestyle. Regional WA will serve educational offerings as a living testbed for ideas and experiences.
