Why Study With Us?


Learn from the Best

The academic staff who teach you aren’t just teachers, they are also engaged in their fields writing books and articles, designing, directing, editing journals, holding positions on international forums and often leading research. They have industry experience and know how to prepare you for it by giving you valuable insight into a rapidly changing environment, teaching you practical skills and offering advice and support about how to navigate your future. 

A Great Environment

We know studying at university can be a challenge so we’re here to support you and we want you to enjoy UOW and make the most of your degree. Our support programs such as Peer-2-Peer Mentoring and Pods help guide you through the transition into University. Small classes and support programs not only allow for a smooth transition but also foster valuable social and learning networks. 

Hands-on Learning

Here at UOW, we offer a hands-on approach to learning. Practical subjects are taken in tandem with theoretical ones and taught by staff that have the industry experience. Whether it is legal training in an internship or publishing using blogs and social media – we know what it takes to cut it in the real world. 

Explore the Bigger Picture and Inspire Change

We all know how quickly the world changes so we make it our priority to incorporate an international outlook into everything we do. Success involves a high level of awareness about what is going on around us. More importantly though, being able to comment, intervene and make sense of current affairs is what will set you apart. You will not only be equipped to land a job, but also be able to evolve and stay relevant to new developments and inspire change.
