Western Sydney University

Western Sydney University

Western Sydney University prides itself on challenging the traditional notion of what a university should be. We are deeply embedded in the community and the region we serve – Australia’s fastest growing economy.

We are dedicated to ensuring our students enjoy a dynamic learning experience. From our award-winning, tech-infused vertical campuses in Western Sydney’s growing CBD’s, to the forward-focused new teaching methodologies, we ensure you are well prepared for the future.

Western Sydney University is also a research leader – the result of focused investment in its research strengths and facilities. In the Excellence in Research for Australia national report, 80 per cent of the University’s assessed research is rated at ‘World Standard’ or above. Such recognition in all these areas highlights the University’s focus on students – more than 60 per cent of whom are first in their family to attend university. The national Course Experience Questionnaire rates the University’s students’ satisfaction as 'above the sector average'.

Recent rankings have shown that Western students are rated as #1 choice for potential employers in NSW* and, according to Times Higher Education World University Rankings, Western is in the top 2% of universities in the world.

We demonstrate our pledge to students with our unique early offer program, HSC True Reward. We recognise that you are more than your ATAR so we focus instead on your strongest skills and the subjects in which you excel. At Western we make early offers into a University degree based on corresponding HSC subject band outcomes 

And we’re not stopping there. We’re working on ways to measure skills such as resilience, time management, the ability to form networks and cultural capital – recognising the critical life-skills needed.

For high achievers, The Academy at Western Sydney University is a program that challenges our students to think differently and cultivates leadership skills. We empower our students with professional and personal experiences so they can influence global change.

With more than 180,000 highly-respected alumni, the University offers the benefits of a dynamic, culturally rich and globally-aware graduate community.

With a modern outlook, the University has an agile and contemporary take on traditional higher education offerings, affording students, both international and Australian-based, significant advantages and unique opportunities.
