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 CBDs, to the forward-focused new teaching methodologies, we ensure you are well prepared for the future.

Ranked in all major global rankings systems, we are delighted to be ranked number one in the world in the prestigious Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings 2022. Assessing universities on their commitment to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, Western Sydney University topped the list of more than 1,400 universities for our response to issues such as sustainability, climate action, equality, inclusivity and social justice.

Western Sydney University is also a research leader – the result of focused investment in its research strengths and facilities. We see learning and research as connected aspects of the student experience. We work with regional, national and international partners to deliver research that has a positive impact on the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of our communities.

At Western 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 based on your Year 11 or Year 12 results in the subjects that matter most to your chosen degree.

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 change locally and globally.

With more than 200,000 highly respected alumni, the university offers the benefits of a dynamic, culturally rich and globally aware graduate community.

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