Study nursing at UOW

Growing up in a rural town myself and being in New South Wales, I was quite interested in regional health. By studying at Wollongong University, I've been able to do a four week placement in Broken Hill and see some of the differences in health care out there. I've also been able to go out to Alice Springs and see different healthcare centres and hospitals there and that's really opened my eyes to all the different things that I can do in rural health.

It's the flexibility, community and support that Robert values

I knew I wanted to study at UOW due to their reputation. I chose UOW Shoalhaven as I valued the community they have created here. Being a smaller campus, the tutors and academics get to know each individual student, creating a safe and supportive environment. I work full-time and study full-time, and UOW Shoalhaven has offered me the flexibility to stay in the job I enjoy and remain close to friends and family.
