A great way to find out more about the area you're interested in studying is to speak to people who are already studying it, and to check out the facilities these students use in their course. You'll get to do all of this - and much more - if you attend UWA's A Day in the Life of a Chemistry Student or A Day in the Life of an Environmental Science Student.
Integrated Human Studies units developed at UWA will examine the complex problems facing the world this century, and tap into the energy of incoming students.
The first-year units 'Humanity in the 21st Century' and ‘Human Action for World Futures' complement and give context to a variety of degree paths. Both units provide broad cross-disciplinary understanding and skills.
Being a student at UWA provides you with the foundations and support to be able to take on absolutely anything. When an interesting idea or possibly rewarding concept comes to mind, you should take hold of it and run, run, run!
That's exactly what a group of seven UWA students did last semester when planning a week-long cultural awareness trip to the Pilbara. Here, second year Engineering/Arts student Alex Thornton (pictured, second from left) shares with us her experiences of the trip.

From 2012, UWA will offer undergraduate students a choice of five new degrees. These will replace our existing undergraduate courses but a broad range of disciplines (subjects) will continue to be offered within them. The new courses are designed to provide you with the opportunity to study a broader range of subjects, develop valuable skills in communication and research, and have time to work out what you are passionate about before making decisions about study pathways and careers.
