The real value of philanthropy

We often refer to the fact that our University was built on the extraordinary philanthropy and vision of our founders almost a century ago ... and our whole community continues to enjoy the benefits of the generosity of new generations of friends and supporters.

Marking out the start to the academic year

Monday, 8 March 2010

The early months of the year provide a valuable opportunity to reflect on the spectrum of academic activity at our University.

In the early part of the year we celebrated the academic excellence of the State's school leavers as they received their results and finalised their decisions for further study. This is very important since our University continues to be the ‘university of choice' for the highest achieving students - and we enrol around 85 per cent of school leavers with a TER of more than 95.

Ending 2009 on a positive note

In the sports arena, awards are handed out to players judged ‘fairest and best' or ‘best and fairest'. The adjectives are interchangeable, depending on the individual club and the decade.

Students aiming high

Monday, 5 October 2009

Teenagers in suburbs like Lockridge, Girrawheen and Hamilton Hill don't often pay much attention to the idea of going to university.

But now these high school students have come to the attention of UWA...  and we're spending $2.45 million to encourage teenagers from these and 21 other similar areas in Perth and the Pilbara to study at University.
