Western Sydney University is student-focused and research-led, located in Australia’s fastest growing, most economically significant region – Greater Western Sydney.
With campuses throughout Australia’s global city, we have more than 50,000 students and a cohort, both locally and globally, of more than 200,000 alumni.
Ranked number 1 in the world
We are delighted to be ranked the world’s best in the 2022 Times Higher Education (THE) University Impact Rankings.
Western Sydney University topped the list out of more than 1,400 institutions for our work tackling issues like sustainability, climate action, equality, inclusivity and social justice.
More than 85 per cent of our research is also rated ‘World standard or above’ in the Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA) evaluation.
Future focused teaching and learning
We ensure our students – 65 per cent of whom are the first in their family to attend university – enjoy the best learning experience possible.
We put students at the heart of everything we do. Our innovative teaching and learning brings students, staff and external partners together to co-create courses that prepare students for employment success in the 21st century.
Our Western Growth strategy is co-creating transformative educational infrastructure in partnership with industry, government and higher education providers.
With world-class vertical campuses in Western Sydney growth centres – Parramatta, Westmead and Liverpool – we will soon open a high-rise campus in Bankstown CBD.
These campuses offer technology-rich teaching and research spaces, collaboration with industry, and embed the university in the economic and civic life of the Western Sydney region.
