Curriculum Innovation

As the region grows, so will the way the University delivers education to meet the needs and expectations of current and future students. Graduates require a transdisciplinary set of skills and capabilities to create a successful future for themselves and their communities.

Study patterns are changing too. Students are seeking accessible, connected learning hubs close to industries that open up opportunities for future employment. Learning is increasingly linked with industry, so connections to workplaces are often an important factor in study choices.

The University is transforming its teaching and curriculum in a ground-breaking way through its 21C Curriculum Project.

The 21C Curriculum Project sees a community of scholars, including students and staff, and external partners working together to co-create courses that address the future of work and prepare students for employment success in the 21st century.

The University is using its new campuses to transform the way that we teach, with technology enhanced learning studios and labs.

In addition, the University is activating an employability strategy, which is aimed at showcasing the vast capital our graduates hold.

Employers rate our graduates the highest of any university in NSW. Western Sydney University provides students with the knowledge needed to be job ready and to have a thriving career.
