You're In2Uni - UOW Transition and Support program

You’re In2Uni is a new program for students who have previously been involved with In2Uni, either through their school or a local training provider. You’re In2Uni brings together a community of staff and peer mentors to support first year students with their transition to UOW, by offering practical guidance and advice. 

We are here to talk through how things are going now that you’ve started uni, offer awesome resources and tips, and answer any questions you may have about balancing life and studies. You are welcome to stop by and say hello or ask a question, no matter how big or small it is. Our door is always open for you to pay us a visit (19.G014) and we would love to meet you! 

What does the program cover?

Beginning with enrolment, we will be available to show you around our beautiful campus. Keep an eye out for our friendly In2Uni mentors at the University Hall and Library who will be there to talk you through the enrolment process and introduce you to a wide variety of services that UOW has to offer. With your mentor, you can find out more information about services, such as Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS), Learning Development, our free and confidential Counselling Service, Disabilities Services, Woolyungah Indigenous Centre and much more!

We’ll be around again at Orientation to catch up with you over a BBQ lunch or a beverage at our outdoor coffee lounge. We have also set up a You’re In2Uni Facebook group to keep in touch with everyone involved in the program. This is a space for you to talk with your peers, organise catch-ups, and ask any questions you may have about university and how to implement strategies that will allow you to keep on top of your studies and excel, both personally and academically.

Through a series of workshops (pre-orientation, Week 3, and Week 8), we will give you all the information you require to get started at university. In the first workshop (Friday 13 February) you will meet with your mentors who will explain the difference between lectures and tutorials, where to purchase textbooks and how to plan your timetable. Registration is essential and must be received by midnight Friday 6th of February. In later workshops, mentors will share their personal experiences with you, talk about how to access support services, think about what really matters to you and what you might like to do as a career. They’ll also let you know about what’s happening on campus and other great opportunities that will help you to learn and grow as an individual.

Our vision is to see you really enjoy your time here at UOW, for you to connect with a wide variety of experiences and opportunities, and for you to feel supported and capable of achieving your very best!

  • Enrolment assistance
  • Orientation bbq and coffee lounge
