In order to help alleviate Year 12 student (and parent) confusion or concerns in regards to applying for university, we are offering information sessions which provide advice on UWA courses, admission requirements and key dates students should be aware of in 2014.
Now students (and teachers) can get the inside scoop on what our Prospective Student Advisers are up to on any given day! Follow us on the road during our regional trips, see the UWA Campus in a different (lo-fi) light, or you may wish to tag one of your own images you take while attending one of our on-campus events.
What did your students get up to in the summer holidays? The ConocoPhillips Science Experience allowed 164 high school students from 75 schools across the state to enjoy "an amazing and eye-opening experience" at UWA's Crawley Campus over three fun science-filled days in January.
The April school holidays aren't that far away (already). If your students are looking for a fun way to spend the day or would love the opportunity to get a sneak-peek into their future life as a uni student at UWA, encourage them to register for one of our ‘Day in the Life' events!
You are invited to the opening of the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts' 2013 End of Year Exhibition this Friday 22 November at Cullity Gallery from 6.30pm.
Curated by Patrick Beale, the exhibition features an impressive array of work by talented undergraduate and postgraduate students currently studying Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Integrated Design, Urban Design and Visual Arts.
To help Year 12 students get a head start on their holidays, we are running a TISC information session on 9 December. This session focusses on how students can structure TISC preferences to give themselves the best chance of achieving their study and career goals. We'll also provide information on our courses and admission requirements.
It's been an extremely busy year for our Prospective Students Office (PSO), and there have been a few changes to the team in recent months. With some familiar and not-so-familar names in the mix (so to speak), we thought this would be a great opportunity for you to meet our new-look team...
Do you know any students in Year 11 who are aspiring designers, or simply keen to develop their creative skills? There is still time to enrol in the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts' (ALVA) annual Design Studio for School Students.
If your students were under the impression that work experience only involved stamping brochures, endless filing and simply observing...they should think again! How about interviewing top UWA researchers one-on-one, compiling articles for a University newsletter and seeing your work published? For five aspiring science journalists from Shenton College and St Hilda's Anglican School for Girls, that's exactly how they spent their week.
Secondary students who are keen to develop their keyboard, string, wind, brass or composition skills under the expert guidance of University staff are encouraged to enrol for the UWA School of Music's Summer School.
The Summer School will be held in the first week of December, and is aimed at students in Years 10 to 12, although younger students may be considered based on their individual skills.
UWA offers more than 400 scholarships every year to undergraduate students from all walks of life. In 2014, there will be in excess of $4 million in scholarships available to undergraduate students to assist them to realize their potential.
If you know any students currently in Year 11 and interested in design, be sure to tell them about the Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts' (ALVA) annual Design Studio for School Students.
The Centre for WA History at The University of Western Australia will once again run a series of Professional Learning Seminars on the Australian Curriculum: History for primary and secondary teachers on Saturday, 24 August.
The format for the 2013 Career Advisers Day was altered slightly to previous years' events to provide a more interactive experience for attendees, and as a result, the feedback received has been extremely positive.
Nearly 200 students from high schools across Perth had the opportunity to experience a 'Day in the Life' of a UWA student at our Crawley campus in the July school holidays. Among them were prospective architects, budding engineers and tomorrow's business leaders.
