Western Sydney University is characterised by its diversity. With six campuses across the Greater Western Sydney region and approximately 44,000 students, it is also one of the largest universities in Australia. Western Sydney University graduates are recognised as being job ready, well trained and also as innovative thinkers, able to solve problems and think on their feet. This is thanks to Western Sydney University’s progressive mix of theory and applied knowledge, delivered through practical, useful courses.
At Western Sydney University we are unlocking the potential of the next generation of global citizens, leaders and change-makers.
With a focus on equipping our graduates to be workplace ready, our curriculum reflects the needs of the world we live in. We acknowledge that in today’s fast-paced and changing world, universities don’t have the monopoly on knowledge or education. In pioneering a model of co-created learning that treats our strategic partners as co-creators in education, we work with business and industry leaders to develop course content that meets the needs of employers, the jobs of the future and responds to the challenges of a global workplace.
Our approach recognises that learning doesn’t just happen in the classroom. Instead, we offer a combination of on-campus, online and clinical learning environments, with real-life work experience in professional and community settings.
