Venue & Host City

Venue – The University of Western Australia (UWA)

The University of Western Australia (UWA) is a public research university in the Australian state of Western Australia. The university’s main campus is in Perth, the state capital, with a secondary campus in Albany and various other facilities elsewhere.

UWA was established in 1911 by an act of the Parliament of Western Australia, and began teaching students two years later. It is the sixth-oldest university in Australia, and was Western Australia’s only university until Murdoch University was established in 1973. Because of its age and reputation, UWA is classed one of the “sandstone universities”, an informal designation given to the oldest university in each state. The university also belongs to several more formal groupings, including the Group of Eight and the Matariki Network of Universities. In recent years, UWA has generally been ranked within or just outside the world’s top 100 universities.

Located next to the Swan River and about five kilometres West of Perth, UWA is the at the doorstep of all Perth has to offer. Getting their is simple too, just catch a train to Elizabeth Quay and hop on the 950, 23, 102 or 107 bus to arrive at UWA within 10 minutes.
