Western Australia is home to 2.57 million people and covers 2, 529 875 square kilometres of land. This means that the state of Western Australia accounts for 33% of the Australian continent which poses its own challenges for granting prospective students across the state the access to information that they need about university study in Western Australia.
The Western Australian collective of prospective student advisors are representatives from the six universities, five public institutions and one private institution. Representatives from Central Queensland University, Curtin University, Edith Cowan University, Murdoch University, The University of Notre Dame Australia and The University of Western Australia work together every year to reach prospective students spread out across the millions of square kilometres to offer students an insight to the tertiary education sector and provide them with information about application, pathways and other opportunities.
This outreach is conducted by way of collectively organised visits to regional and remote areas whereby representatives from the various organisations work and travel together to deliver information and promote tertiary study in sessions which are free for students and schools.
Each year, the six universities work collectively and proactively to develop presentations and other material to distribute to prospective students, teachers, schools and parents to ensure the most up to date information is provided to make the very best decisions.
The work of the Western Australia collective isn’t just limited to students in regional and remote areas. Representatives from the six universities also work together to deliver information and organise events for schools and students in the metropolitan and regional areas of Western Australia.
