Western Sydney University, formerly the University of Western Sydney, is an Australian multi-campus university in the Greater Western region of Sydney. It is a provider of undergraduate, postgraduate and higher research degrees with campuses in Bankstown, Blacktown, Campbelltown, Hawkesbury, Parramatta, and Penrith. It is currently ranked in the top 400 in the world in the 2014 QS World University Rankings and 19th in Australia in 2015.
The university in its current form was founded in 1989 under the terms of the University of Western Sydney Act, 1988, which created a federated network university with an amalgamation between two trade schools – Nepean College of Advanced Education and Hawkesbury Agricultural College. The Macarthur Institute of Higher Education was incorporated into the university in 1989, and in 2001 the University of Western Sydney was restructured as a single multi-campus university rather than as a federation. In 2015, the university underwent a rebranding which resulted in a change in name from the University of Western Sydney to Western Sydney University.
Founded in 1890, the University of Tasmania is one of the oldest universities in Australia.

The University has a total student population of more than 16,000 students. It has two campuses, in Hobart and Launceston, as well as a study centre situated in Burnie, on the state’s north-west coast. The medical programme at the University of Tasmania has been consistently rated as the best of the six-year programmes in Australia in terms of student satisfaction and teaching quality (The Australian Good Universities Guide). It is a small medical School with a total intake of only 75 students each year, which includes approximately 18 international students. Students are treated as individuals, not as anonymous numbers in a large class, and they have plenty of opportunities to interact with teachers, including senior hospital staff.

From its beginnings in 1850, the University of Sydney was created as an institution to suit the needs of New South Wales, not simply reflect England’s ancient universities. A founding principle was that academic merit alone regardless of religious beliefs or social upbringing would be the test for admission. We can make a strong claim to being the first university in the world to admit male students purely on the basis of academic merit. In the 1880s we were also among the first to admit women on the same basis as men.
Our founders recognised the power of education to change society. We hold that belief just as strongly today.
The Australian National University was established to be of enduring significance in the post-war life of the nation – to support the development of national unity and identity, to improve Australia’s understanding of itself and its neighbours, and to contribute to economic development and social cohesion. Its mandate was to undertake “postgraduate research and study both generally and in relation to subjects of national importance”. This national mission gives ANU a distinctive relationship with the Australian Federal Government.
