Our Purpose

We build skills for the future of the Pilbara and its communities.

The Pilbara Universities Centre (PUC) is a not-for-profit organisation providing educational pathways for students looking to pursue undergraduate, postgraduate, and professional development education.

The PUC is the link between the Pilbara region and tertiary education. With the nearest university to the Pilbara approximately 1,600 km in Perth, we bring world class programs directly to the region. The PUC provides access to higher education facilities, support services, and opportunities for Pilbara residents of all ages and backgrounds, without any need to relocate.

Our relationships with councils, business, industry, and educational partners helps us deliver immersive and innovative education programs that produce graduates who enrich, power, and sustain the Pilbara.
