Spending a year at the University of Western Australia (UWA) was a right decision. I have learnt different cultures in UWA because I made a lot of new friends of different nationalities there. Also, the teachers have given a lot of precious suggestions to my studies as well as career. I also liked the environment around UWA as everyone seemed friendly and willing to help when I needed any. I also loved the campus as it was so green and big and full of sports facilities. show less

I am personally enjoying my stay at the University of Western Australia very much. During O-week last year I was a bit lost as the campus was very big but within a short space of time I received help and I familiarised myself with the place. In terms of classes, both ilectures and tutorials are very well organised and there is nothing that I can complain about. The only downside that I feel about UWA is that you don't feel like you are an individual as they don't treat every student very personally. This is the change I least liked when transitioning from school. Besides that, I would definitely recommend UWA. show less
