The University

Located only three miles from Perth’s downtown area and 30 minutes from the port city of Fremantle, the beautiful University of Western Australia (UWA) is a friendly, multicultural campus of about 21,000 students, including 4,400 international students.  As one of the prestigious Australian Group of Eight schools, the university has an international reputation for teaching and research excellence and is considered to be among the top-ranked universities worldwide.

UWA has a broad range of course offerings spanning all disciplines and is especially strong in the arts and humanities, sciences, environmental studies, business, economics, social sciences, and education.

Perth.AustraliaThe Program

Students take four courses per semester and choose from a wide selection of subjects across departments. Instruction is based on the British academic system combining lectures, which may be large, with small weekly discussion groups or “tutorials.” While not mandatory, students are encouraged to sign up for tutorials.

There are few exams during the semester and grades are based primarily upon end of the semester or year assessment. Students are fully integrated with their Aussie counterparts in all aspects of university life. UWA offers many on-campus services including dining facilities, banks, post office, bookstore, and recreational facilities.

Academics & Support

The International Office provides an orientation program for all study abroad and exchange students. The orientation covers general information about the local area and the university. During the orientation participants will complete their course enrollment and meet their academic advisor. Students are advised to take courses about aspects of Australian culture within the academic departments. 

Course selection information at your host university is available here, and general course listings and information are here

Students will also have an opportunity to sign up for optional excursions around the local area. Each student is assigned an academic advisor, but Student Services also provides counseling services, an on-campus health service, learning and research skills support, a career center, and housing assistance.

Accommodations

There is a wide variety of student accommodations at UWA. There are five Residential Colleges affiliated with or owned by UWA and they are located adjacent to the campus. Living in a College provides students with a unique experience and opportunity to live with Australian and other international students. There are some places for study abroad students, but acceptance is quite competitive. Students are encouraged to consider St. Thomas More, a Catholic residential College across the street from the Crawley campus.

If students decide to live off-campus, there are University-owned residential apartments. The Housing Office also maintains a list of off-campus rental options, and provides support to students looking for off-campus accommodations as well as advising about renting or leasing. Regardless of the type of accommodations that students choose, please remember that students are responsible for paying housing fees directly to the provider.

Fall and Year students should apply for housing as soon as possible. Spring semester students should apply beginning around October 1.

Students should be sure to send their contact information abroad to OIP once they are settled in.

Meals

Australian universities do not have meal plans as universities do in the United States. There are a number of dining facilities on campus and students may dine on a pay-as-you-go basis. Students living at a Residential College have at least some of their meals included in the fees.

Australia 2Cultural Activities

The university has a wide variety of clubs, societies, and activities. Study Abroad and Exchange students are strongly encouraged and warmly welcome to join them. The university sponsors events, and the clubs also organize activities through the semester. 

At UWA, volunteer opportunities are maintained and listed by the Student Guild. Volunteering is an excellent way to become involved and to get to know something about the local community.

International students are allowed to work or volunteer under the terms of the student visa. However, there is a small fee added to the cost of a student visa for the privilege.
