As we celebrate the year of our centenary, UWA sits poised for continued success on the world stage. Today we are ranked among the top 100 universities globally. In the New Century we will rise to the top 50, thanks to our existing and emerging centres of excellence in research, teaching and partnership.

We are fortunate to operate in a part of the world that is home to 60 per cent of the global population, along with expanding economies in nations promising the greatest growth for the 21st century.
