Akash MishraMaster of Business Information and Logistics Management
UWA is the best university in WA. The master’s framework is very practical and prepares you for advanced business and career exposure. The faculty members, beautiful campus and friendly environment make studying here an amazing experience. I chose to study the Master of Business Information and Logistics Management because it is industry relevant and combines both business and IT. This course suits someone who wants to pursue a career in something like business analytics or digital marketing.
Alexander FloydData Science major
The facilities and the staff here are world-class, with most of my lecturers and tutors holding PhDs, so I am constantly inspired. The projects and assignments are very relevant and the skills I am learning are easily transferable. The social life on campus is fantastic with all the clubs very welcoming and very active. As a mature-age student, I thought I might be too old to socialise, but this most definitely isn’t the case.
Alistair RyanHuman Geography and Planning major
UWA has always been recognised as Western Australia’s premier university. Having achieved well in high school, I wanted to attend an institution that matched the ability I had. Furthermore, testimonials from tutors and relatives about UWA’s culture only pushed me to believe that it would be the most enjoyable university to attend – which so far, I believe has rung true.
Amy McDermottMaster of Studies

Throughout my course, my perspective of the world has been broadened. The students in my class share my passion for protecting our environment and their belief in a better future is contagious; it’s easy to feel optimistic and determined when you’re surrounded by kind-hearted people.
Everyone’s aware of UWA’s prestigious reputation, but really it was the relocation services and pleasant atmosphere that allowed me to picture myself living as a student here.

Broderick MoncrieffItalian Studies major
The Diploma of Modern Languages has been a fantastic addition to my degree. It has broadened my studies and I feel it has enhanced my education at UWA. I definitely feel it is a huge bonus, and learning a language will improve my career opportunities. Italian is a beautiful language and I have loved learning it here at UWA. Studying at UWA has been a great experience.
As a student in the Faculty of Arts, Business, Law and Education there is a huge amount of international study opportunities which contribute to your degree. My semester of exchange as part of this was the best decision I made during my studies.
