As Australia's largest state, it's not surprising that Western Australia offers students the best of both worlds: a great lifestyle and a range of study options.
While most uni campuses are clustered around Perth and Fremantle, those in Kalgoorlie in WA’s Goldfields and Broome on the north-west coast are quite possibly the farthest flung in Australia.
Undergraduate degrees are available across a broad range of subject areas: ecotourism, veterinary science, psychology, finance, journalism, law, health science and performing arts, to name just a few.
There is no one university that is best for all students, since different things matter to different people. The Good Universities Guide ratings provide a series of insights on Australian universities, helping those in the process of deciding where to study.
Courses and institutions differ in many ways and only the student can decide which differences really matter to them. Check out the ratings for WA universities and filter by study level (undergraduate or postgraduate). Some ratings are also available to filter further by field of study.
In the tables below, we’ve listed the university that ranked highest in each rating category for WA in the 2022 edition of The Good Universities Guide ratings.
