UWA will partner with the State Government and MTP Connect in this initiative to grow Western Australia’s life sciences and innovation sector and boost local research capability. Read more below.
For the second year, Times Higher Education has released its Asia-Pacific University Rankings and UWA has retained our position at 19. It is pleasing the Asia-Pacific’s important role in the Higher Education sector is recognised through these rankings and we can be proud of our continued strong performance.
