A little bit about PSA

​The UWA Postgraduate Students’ Association (PSA) is the representative body for postgraduate students at UWA.

Every postgraduate is automatically a member of the PSA upon enrolment – including both Coursework and Research students. The PSA is run by a committee of elected representatives.

Our core functions are representation, advocacy and providing services to postgraduate students. The PSA also organises a number of informative and social events throughout the year to foster a sense of community among postgraduates.

We aim to make postgraduate students at UWA more visible; to each other, to administrators, and to those outside the University. We also hope to improve communication between postgraduates and relevant service providers at UWA. We believe that some of the most important work of postgraduate students happens outside the office or lab – at conferences, networking events, and social evenings. The PSA helps postgraduates get to these events.
