UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA

 

UWA is one of the best universities in the world and one of Australia's top research universities.

Famous for its strong engineering and science programs, UWA offers almost every kind of major.

The university is located about 10 minutes from Perth, along a river, and about 10 minutes from its most famous beach. The coastline is one of the cleanest and most pristine in the world. An attractive city of about two million, it has become one of the most diverse in the world due the region's booming economy. Oil, gas and mining are important in the northern part of its region which is about four times the size of Texas. The mild climate makes it possible to enjoy the outdoors all year around.
