About

History

For the past 100 years, UWA has contributed significantly to the intellectual, cultural and economic development of the State of Western Australia and the nation as a whole.

Education

Your degree may include opportunities for practical work or fieldwork, and you will learn the theory in group lectures, group discussions and through independent study. The balance of methods of teaching you will experience depend on the degree you choose.

The type and number of assessments you will need to complete depends on the degree you choose. Some degrees involve regular assessment.

Some may be assessed with one final exam. Some may include both assessments and exams. You may submit coursework, essays and a final dissertation, take part in group work and presentations, or sit exams.

You can study a degree in Australia if you would like to explore your chosen subject in greater depth.
