Welcome from Postgraduate coordinators

The School focuses on providing an integrated understanding of the Earth, including its geological structure, its physical and biological systems, and the people that inhabit it. As such the school has a wide range of research activities with major centres and programs and is in fact one of the largest schools at UWA. It has a vibrant postgraduate environment with fantastic student engagement and support from the student cohort. We hope that you enjoy your program in the school and trust that you benefit from the world class research and teaching environment we have to offer.

Best of luck with your studies!
