Aside from WAMSS, there are other student organisations that you can join to further your interests and passions.

Learn more about them below.

Through the UWA Student Guild, you can get involved with 180+ clubs, with over 1000 events on campus, and hundreds of volunteering opportunities to choose from.


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


The WA Medical Students’ Orchestra (WAMSO) is a symphony orchestra that provides an opportunity for medical students with a passion for music (but not always a lot of time) to dust off their instruments once a week for our own mental health and for charity!

The orchestra performs twice a year, and rehearses every Tuesday night from 7-9 pm at UWA. All are welcome, and there are no auditions or other entry requirements. 

There’s also an associated choir, Choir Cantori is a student-led contemporary singing group that performs twice a year with the wonderful WAMSO. Choir Cantori is open to students - no previous choir or musical training required, just enthusiasm and commitment!
