Get involved

The UWA Alumni Ambassador program helps strengthen UWA’s reputation and amplify our international profile. Being a responsive role, the program aims to provide connections for prospective and exchange students to alumni in their city, sharing their UWA experience, providing career insights and industry connections. Alumni Ambassadors can contribute their time and talent in support of UWA’s international priorities and initiatives, supporting UWA's 2030 vision, and help UWA continue to be a world top 100 university. 

All ambassadors are invited to attend the Global Alumni Volunteer Conference which provides exclusive training and networking opportunities. Below are just some of the opportunities available:

Alumni success stories

Reflecting on your UWA experience, what aspects were most important for your development?

UWA graduates carry out interesting careers. Graduates are also often involved in vital research, a manner of subjects across all research areas. Some are interested in politics, others in law, epidemiology, sport, seagrasses or information and communications technology.

To promote the diversity of UWA, and to encourage others who are inspired to make their own mark on the world, we encourage you to share your story to future UWA students.
