UWA is located in Perth, Western Australia with the main campus hosting more than 23,000 students. Perth is Australia's fourth-largest city with over two million people from a variety of cultures worldwide, a strong economy and vibrant lifestyle. Perth is also one of the country's most affordable cities. Some of the reasons why Perth is such a great place for international students to study:
- Enabling career opportunities with Australia's largest number of companies listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX)
- One of Australia's most affordable cities (Worldwide Cost of Living Survey 2019, Economist Intelligence Unit)
UWA's Perth campus hosts state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities and is one of the most beautiful in the nation. The university also has a campus in Albany, on the south coast of Western Australia, which offers a similarly top-class learning environment underpinned by the latest technology.
The university boasts many notable alumni, including Nobel Laureates, with graduates of UWA being well prepared for the world of work. This extends to research, for which the university is highly regarded, including partnerships with organisations and industry.
Students at UWA are well catered for with a range of support services and assistance. This includes career guidance, counselling, financial advice, disability support and academic mentoring.
