Andrew and Nicola Forrest have made philanthropic history today, donating a further $65 million to the Forrest Research Foundation, a partnership with all five Western Australian universities and hosted within The University of Western Australia (UWA).
No one knows the value of a UWA degree better than a UWA grad. And no one can tell the story better, with more heart, to prospective students.
This is why, for the first time, graduates are playing a direct role in UWA's postgraduate admissions, making calls to domestic prospective postgraduate students who have received letters of offer from UWA. Alumni volunteers of similar educational background are reaching out to share why UWA should be a student’s preferred choice.
Last Saturday 60 rural students from 22 country towns, including 17 students from Bunbury, graduated from The University of Western Australia’s Medical School – the biggest number of rural background doctors to graduate in a single year.
