Information for parents and carers

The Parents and Carers page provides information to assist and inform parents about 'uni matters'. You will find information ranging from Year 10 subject selection through to how your child applies to university. We also cover all the bits in between, and you'll find useful information such as the dates and venues for UOW Information Evenings and who to contact if you have questions. UOW also offers a Parents e-newsletter which provides updates and information to parents of Year 12 students.

Information for Career Advisors

The UOW Schools Liaison Team is able to provide a number of services to schools in NSW to help prepare students for university. The Careers Advisor page provides information on who to contact at UOW to arrange a visit by UOW to your school through our Links program.
