UWA Vice-Chancellor Alan Robson said the UWA Expo was an important opportunity for the University to present the campus to the community and enable prospective students and their families to find out about the huge range of courses on offer.
“The University of Western Australia aims to achieve international excellence in all its activities. For our students this means having access to one of the best learning environments in Australia and being connected to the international world of knowledge,” Professor Robson said.
Expo activities kick off at 8.30am with the Vice-Chancellors’ Cup, an intervarsity rowing regatta held at the UWA Boat Club on Matilda Bay. The regatta is presented by Tertiary Sports Western Australia and the UWA Sport and Recreation Association.
On the University campus, prospective students will be able to learn more about courses in faculty displays and through information sessions repeated throughout the day. Current students and staff will be on hand to discuss individual needs and study interests.
There will also be information on UWA Student Guild activities, social and sporting clubs, and the range of support services provided to undergraduate students. As well, other facilities such as the University Club, the Berndt Museum of Anthropology, and the Edward de Courcy Clarke Earth Sciences Museum will also be open.
The UWA Big Band, under the direction of Matthew Styles will perform a lunchtime concert at 12.15pm on the Great Court, in front of the Reid Library. Further information is available on the web at: www.expo.uwa.edu.au
