Western Sydney University is a world-class university with a growing international reach and reputation for academic excellence and impact-driven research. 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.
The University continues to adopt new teaching methods opening up the curriculum to technology-infused learning. The University ensures the curriculum is relevant through partnerships with industry, business and government, and most importantly, its students through innovative co-created learning. In recent years, Western Sydney University academics have been awarded the prestigious Prime Minister's Award for Australian University Teacher of the Year for two consecutive years, with Professors Roy Tasker and James Arvanitakis.
Western Sydney University successfully partners with a range of global businesses to provide our students with unique work integrated learning opportunities. These include PricewaterhouseCoopers, KPMG, Deloitte. Partnerships like these empower the University’s internship program to provide students with hundreds of placement opportunities each year where they can apply their learning and determination in the real world.
