Western Sydney University is a world-class university with a growing international reach and reputation for academic excellence and impact-driven research.
Ranked among the top 2% of universities in the world* we are a student-focused university which puts you at the centre of the university experience.
We are community-driven, research-led, and globally-focused. This positively impacts the communities we engage with and our student body who come from a multitude of diverse backgrounds.
As a dynamic place of learning, we continue to challenge traditional notions of what a university should be by pushing the boundaries of how knowledge is exchanged.
At Western Sydney University we equip our graduates for more than a career. We are unlocking the potential of the next generation of global citizens, leaders and change-makers.
When it comes to employers being happy with graduates they’ve hired, no other university in Sydney ranks as highly as Western Sydney University.

We tailor all our courses to give you the skills and knowledge needed to be job ready and to have a thriving career. It’s why no other university prepares you for what employers are looking for in graduates, better than Western.
