Western Sydney University is a world-class university with a growing international reach and reputation for academic excellence and impact-driven research.

Ranked amongst the top three per cent of universities in the world, we are globally focused, research-led and committed to making a positive impact – at a regional, national and international level.

At Western Sydney University we are unlocking the potential of the next generation of global citizens, leaders and change-makers.

With a focus on equipping our graduates to be workplace ready, our curriculum reflects the needs of the world we live in. We acknowledge that in today’s fast-paced and changing world universities don’t have the monopoly on knowledge or education. In pioneering a model of co-created learning that treats our strategic partners as co-creators in education, we work with business and industry leaders to develop course content that meets the needs of employers, the jobs of the future and responds to the challenges of a global workplace.

Our approach recognises that learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom. Instead, we offer a combination of on-campus, online and clinical learning environments, with real-life work experience in professional and community settings.
