The 2016 Perth Writers Festival will take place between 18 and 21 February at The University of Western Australia and brings together writers, artists, thinkers, provocateurs and innovators from around the globe for a stimulating and inspiring literary weekend.
Nobel Laureate and Professor at The University of Western Australia Barry Marshall has lead a number of prominent events in China during Austrade’s second Australia Week in China (AWIC) program.
Professor Marshall was joint winner of the Nobel Prize for medicine in 2005 and is remembered in particular for an episode in which he acted as a 'human guinea pig' and swallowed a concoction containing Helicobacter pylori to provide evidence to prove his hypothesis.
As the water laps the Matildas Bay foreshore and a warm morning breeze fills the air, new arrivals wander down to the UWA boat shed with an air of excited anticipation. They are preparing to head off on a mountain biking adventure challenge to the Perth Hills as part of the UWA Sport leadership course.
With water being an integral part of the Australian way of life and a key selling point for international students to study in Australia, it’s no surprise the latest course added to UWA Sport’s Recreate® program, Swimming and Water Safety has been popular.
