The Greater Western Sydney region is the home of UWS and stretches from Parramatta, the geographical centre of Sydney, to the Blue Mountains on the western edge of the metropolitan Sydney area. Greater Western Sydney is also a global centre for trade, innovation and learning with the third largest economy in Australia. Of the top 500 companies in Australia, 150 are based in the area making it the ideal location for future leaders. Home to more than one in 11 Australians, Greater Western Sydney has the most diverse multicultural communities in the world. As an international student studying at UWS and with half the world’s nations represented in western Sydney, you have every chance of feeling at home in the region. Greater Western Sydney is also home to the largest urban Indigenous population in Australia which includes the traditional Aboriginal groups – Darug, Gandangarra and Tharawal. UWS’s commitment to work in partnership with people and organisations in the region, is proven immensely by the range of cultural groups and research groups we have.
