Do you know a WA charity that could use some extra support?
The UWA Student Guild is now seeking prospective beneficiaries for the 2016 edition of the long-running fundraising event PROSH.
PROSH started in 1931 when students were ordered to donate to Children’s Hospital after writing a satirical newspaper that stirred up controversy. Since then, it’s become an annual tradition for UWA students to publish a paper satirising the issues of the moment and hit the streets in costume to sell the paper and raise funds for charities that support the WA community.
Campus Management has re-designed staff and student parking permits, along with parking information to bring the design in line with UWA’s new branding. The rollout of the new look will occur with the issue of staff parking permits in January 2016.
The updated brochure is a handy guide and includes parking information at UWA, FAQs and a revised parking map to assist you with parking options on campus. For full details on parking visit transport.uwa.edu.au.
As staff across the University get ready to take a well-earned break, please spare a thought for our Admissions team who will be working throughout the shutdown period.
Part of the Community & Engagement portfolio, Admissions brings together all aspects of the admissions process for both domestic and international, Undergraduate and Postgraduate students. The team is responsible for the core assessment of applications, and the offer conversion process and the continuous improvement and development of admissions processes.
