Research at Western

With a mission to serve regional and international communities, research at Western Sydney University is designed to be impactful at a local, national and global level. Western is among the top two percent of universities worldwide, and in the top 100 universities less than 50 years old, according to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

Our reach and impact are global, but the questions we set out to answer are generated locally in Western Sydney.

Our research is inclusive and codesigned with those beyond the University’s gates, those who know the issues through lived experience. At Western we recognise the importance of partnering with those whom our research makes a difference – to their work and their lives.

Our partners are invested in our outcomes and they do more than support the work of our researchers. Our partners design research and perform research and their link to our teams ensures we deliver impact to industry and communities locally, nationally and globally.
