UWA Vice-Chancellor Professor Dawn Freshwater said UWA’s rise from 96th to 91st was a great achievement.

“These results demonstrate that we are an internationally reputed research-intensive university, which is delivering world-class outcomes not only for our students, but also for our broad range of stakeholders.
