UWA is the only Western Australian university to belong to the prestigious Group of Eight - a coalition of the top research universities in Australia - and it is one of only two Australian members of the Worldwide Universities Network, a partnership of 18 research-led universities from Europe, Africa, the Americas and the Asia-Pacific.

This high standard is reflected in the success of UWA staff and graduates who include Nobel Prize winners, a former Prime Minister, Six Australian Ambassadors to China and over 100 Rhodes Scholars.

With almost 24,000 students enrolled across nine faculties. A model of broad undergraduate studies followed by postgraduate professional qualifications has been designed to produce well-rounded graduates, as well as provide additional entry opportunities for a wider range of students.
