Aspire UWA works with partner schools and communities in regional Western Australia and in Perth to raise aspirations for tertiary education.

Working Together for a Brighter Future

We encourage students who would not normally consider university as an option to see the benefits and opportunities that university study offers.

"Attending this camp has helped me to see what I can do in the future, what uni is like and what I'm interested in to study."

We are working with secondary school students in the Gascoyne, Kimberley, Mid-West, Pilbara, and in Perth raising aspirations, building academic capacity and creating wonderful opportunities for success and life-long learning. Our students attend schools that traditionally have some of the lowest transfer rates to higher education of any in the nation. Aspire UWA and our partner schools are promoting a culture of academic achievement and desire for learning that is changing lives.

"Our son came home from the UWA trip today so excited by what he saw, he really wants to go to university now, he thoroughly enjoyed the day."
