Program Overview

Program Description:
Semester at The University of Wollongong (UOW)

The University of Wollongong (UOW), with more than 26,000 undergraduate students, is a perfect choice for those who want to study at a friendly campus in an attractive suburban setting that is close to a world-class large city- Sydney. The campus is 5km from the city center, and is close to the rail connection to Sydney. UOW has been ranked twice as Australia’s University of the Year and is highly regarded for its extensive contributions to academic and scientific research in a variety of disciplines. Wollongong’s innovative teaching programs were a key factor in this outstanding rating. There is an emphasis on interdisciplinary teaching with a very personal approach to teaching by many lecturers and tutors. Computer skills are a top priority, and all students must become computer literate well before graduation.

Setting Description:
Wollongong is a modern city of almost 300,000 people, located just 80 km south of Sydney. Wollongong has spectacular scenery, magnificent ocean beaches, unspoiled coastal forest areas, and is an easy hour and a half trip by train or car to the cosmopolitan metropolis of Sydney. Winters are mild, and summers are hot and often quite humid. Wollongong has the friendliness of a smaller town combined with the cultural sophistication of a large city. On-campus student residences and apartments are available for students.
