гісторыя


Універсітэт Заходняй Аўстраліі (UWA) была створана ў 1911 as the State’s first university. It was also the first free university in the British Empire, actively promoting equal access to tertiary education for all social classes.

The University was established due largely to the efforts of Sir John Winthrop Hackett, who had a long-standing vision and passion to provide Western Australia with a university. Proprietor and editor of The West Australian newspaper, he chaired a Royal Commission which recommended the establishment of a university. Later he was the founding Chancellor and bequeathed more than £425,000 (the equivalent of more than $32 million today) to the University.

There was consensus among legislators of the time that the University not only be free, but also provide tertiary education of a practical nature to help develop Western Australia’s pioneering economy. At the time of the University’s foundation, Perth’s population was just 121,000 and its economy relied mostly on agricultural, pastoral and mining industries.

У выніку, the founding professorial appointments were in Agriculture, Mining and Engineering, геалогія, Матэматыка і фізіка, хімія, History and Economics, біялогія, and English. These were balanced to an extent by the appointment of lecturers in Classics and Ancient History, французскі, нямецкі, Mental and Moral Philosophy, and Veterinary Science. Overarching these 12 posts were three faculties – Engineering, Science and Arts.

Больш чым 100 гадоў праз, the University is now home to nine Faculties and Schools and a number of Research Institutions and Centres which celebrated the University’s Centenary in 2013. UWA also entered the internationally-recognised Academic Ranking of World Universities’ топ 100 listing, continuing to set the standard for other West Australian universities to follow in terms of recognition for its achievements nationally and internationally.

Enrolments grew to 10,195 у 1975 and started tapering off in 1976 as Commonwealth funding and student quotas were cut across Australia. Funding for UWA was also diverted to finance UWA’s first major competitor, the newly created Murdoch University.

With the entry of several other tertiary institutions into Perth during the 1960s and 1970s, UWA was no longer expected to be the sole deliverer of higher education in Western Australia. такім чынам, the University was able to be more specific in its goals and priorities than it had in the past.

Адначасова, it had to meet the changing needs of the Western Australian community, which had become more affluent and industrialised. Significant growth had also occurred in mining, commercial and financial sectors as well as the public service.

Over the next two decades enrolments slowly climbed to 12,791 у 1994 and then began to increase more rapidly to 21,091 у 2009. у 2012 there were more than 24,000 студэнтаў, якія навучаюцца.

2012 was a year of significant change for the University with the introduction of a new course structure.

The model of broad undergraduate studies followed by a postgraduate professional qualification is in line with leading universities across the world and has been designed to produce well-rounded graduates, as well as provide multiple entry opportunities for a wide range of students.
