In a real-life consulting project for ATCO Gas Australia, a team of UWA MBA students has developed a strategy to help the company thrive in Western Australia’s rapidly evolving energy market. ATCO has been a long standing partner of the UWA Business School and is passionate about providing opportunities for students to develop their skills in and out of the lecture theatre.
Each year hundreds of pre service teachers from UWA undergo their professional practice at schools throughout the state. They spend between 12 to 14 weeks at a school learning about classroom dynamics and engaging with students and staff. Samuel Marsh completed his practicum at Scotch College earlier this year teaching History under the guidance of teacher mentor James Hindle. We asked Sam to tell us more about his experiences and what he learned during his time at Scotch College.
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.

More than 30 Indigenous Year 12 students from across WA are attending a leadership seminar at The University of Western Australia this week, which aims to encourage them to aspire to a tertiary education and learn about the opportunities available at UWA.
A new centre at The University of Western Australia will recruit student interns to work with community groups and not-for profit organisations with the aim of fostering a life-long commitment to the community.
