We’ve listened to your feedback and are improving assessment practices at UWA. The new Assessment Policy will be implemented in phases from Jan 2016 to Sem 1, 2018. Main changes will include: a 2-hour limit on exams; maximum 15-day turnaround for feedback on assessments; late submission penalties of 5 percent per day and a mark of 0 after 7 days; and exam feedback given through LMS.
An initiative of The Big Issue, The Big Idea national competition invites students to develop a concept and business plan for a social enterprise to help disadvantaged Australians. You would form multi-disciplinary teams of 4-6 in August and work towards a business plan submission deadline in October.
The experiences and knowledge gained from living on campus, coupled with your UWA degree, provide you with an educational experience unlike any other in Western Australia.
Take your studies around the world! A range of opportunities are open all year for UWA students to study abroad, often with scholarships or bursaries.
First semester classes end on June 3, which is also the last day to withdraw from Sem 1 units (unit shows on formal academic record with a grade of FN). June 6 is Western Australia Day (not a University holiday). June 6-10 is pre-examination study break and first semester exams are on June 11-25. Winter vacation is coming June 27 to July 31!
