We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Perth is the largest city in Western Australia. It is also the most important higher education hub in this part of the country, with four public universities, one private university and a student population in excess of 110,000.
Perth has a rather unique claim to fame as one of the most isolated cities on Earth, with the majority of Australia’s other urban centres located in the east and south east of the country – an excellent place to focus on a Masters degree with no distractions, then!
Well, yes and no: Perth is actually Australia’s fourth most populous city and the centre for many important national and international businesses, festivals and entertainment events.
You’ll find that life for postgraduate students in Perth can involve a range of activities, drawing upon the city’s unique location and strong local culture.
The city is home to many of its own music festivals and arts events as well as a number of theatres, galleries and opera houses. Local sports include baseball, cricket and Australian-rules football (which has a particularly strong following in the region).
Perth Zoo is also a nationally important centre for the study and conservation of Australia’s unique wildlife. Further afield, Perth’s coastline is an excellent place from which to observe spectacular wild species including humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins.
The oldest university in Perth is the University of Western Australia, founded in 1911 and widely regarded as one of the premier research universities in Australia. It is a member of Australia’s elite Group of Eight and regularly ranks within the top 100-150 universities worldwide.
Other major higher education providers include Curtin University, which has won numerous prizes for the quality of its postgraduate research.
Historically, Perth has been closely associated with the mining and energy industries and to this day the city is a major regional base for some of the largest mining corporations in the world. The city has a diverse economy from these industries, with strong representation in the creative, technology, financial services and medical sectors.
