Western Sydney University is a research-led university providing relevant and high-quality education programs for today's rapidly changing world.
WSU has an industry-oriented approach combining academic learning with practical hands-on experience and learning opportunities.
With a reputation for excellence in teaching, our student-centred learning strategy encourages flexible and innovative learning techniques, which are supported by state-of-the art facilities, including a sport and exercise science laboratory, crime-scene facility, moot court, mechatronics facility, food-processing pilot plant and convergent media studio complex.
As one of the largest universities in Australia, WSU is located in the Greater Western Sydney region, which stretches from Parramatta to the Blue Mountains National Park.
With seven campuses spread across Western Sydney, your campus location will depend largely on the disciplines you choose to study at WSU. While each campus offers a unique learning environment, they all share the same friendly, communal atmosphere that makes WSU a great place to study and make friends.
At WSU, students are provided with comprehensive support to successfully reach their academic goals. Services available to all students include advice on careers, employment and learning skills assistance, counselling, religious support and assistance for students with a disability.
On top of these services, our study abroad and exchange students are supported from the time of their arrival in Australia with a free airport pick-up service for students staying on campus, a dedicated orientation program for study abroad and exchange students and a program of social events.
Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) are a great way for our study abroad and exchange students to optimise their academic success at WSU. The study groups formed through PASS also provide opportunities to meet fellow students and make friends.
With the WSU Out and About Trips and Tours program, it's easy to make the most of the beautiful natural environment in Sydney and to see Australia. From climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge or learning to surf, to travelling further afield to trek the wilderness of Tasmania, you can book and go with WSU.
WSU Village provides high-quality, safe and affordable accommodation on all campuses. The accommodation at each campus has its own unique features and you might find yourself with a swimming pool, barbecue area or great communal lounge to enjoy with friends.
