To help you settle in, make an appointment with a graduate education officer.

Email Dr Jo Edmondston to book your appointment. At your first meeting, you will:

  • make sure you have the information you need to settle at UWA
  • address any of your immediate concerns
  • let you know about workshops and other resources
  • ensure you can find key services around campus
  • discuss key goals for your candidature.

Graduate education officers remain in email contact with you until the end of your first year of study.
