The University of Western Australia (UWA) will hold an information session for prospective students in Tokyo from 18:30-19:30, 27th March. The session led by Ms Sarah Rudling from the university, will be held at the ICC office building in Ebisu. After the session, there will be plenty of time to ask any questions you may have.

Founded in 1911, the University of Western Australia is Western Australia’s oldest university. It was rated second overall in Australia by the Good Universities Guide 2011 based on key performance measures such as graduate starting salaries, employment prospects, staff qualifications, research intensity and student demand.

It consistently ranks in the top 120 international universities and in the top 10-18 universities in the Asia-Pacific region. UWA is the only Western Australian university to belong to the Group of Eight – a coalition of the top research universities in Australia – and it is one of only two Australian universities to belong to the Worldwide Universities Network, a partnership of 16 research-led universities in Europe, North America, North Asia and Australia.

Comprehensive learning programs for undergraduates and postgraduates are offered across nine faculties: Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts; Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences; Business; Education; Engineering, Computing and Mathematics; Law; Science (including Life and Physical Sciences and Natural and Agricultural Sciences); Medicine, Dentistry and Health Sciences; together with a School of Indigenous Studies. The university has a Centre for English Language Teaching (CELT) which teaches English at a high level, and is suitable for students who wish study at a post-graduate level.

Sitting on the banks of the Swan River, the UWA Crawley Campus is the oldest in Western Australia and among the most picturesque in the nation with its grand sandstone and terracotta buildings sitting among elegant heritage-listed gardens. The University welcomes more than 4500 international students from 90 different countries to its academic programs.
