Quality education and partnerships for solutions

The University of Wollongong (UOW) is a leading global university and an anchor institution powered by our people, partnerships and communities. Together with our partners, we are delivering positive impact for a better world. 

Our vibrant global community

At UOW, our transformative projects are connecting our communities into an international network of businesses, collaborators, researchers, students, governments and investors. 

Better health and healthier environments

We are committed to improving the health and wellbeing of diverse populations including First Nations Australians, culturally and linguistically diverse populations, and those living in regional, rural and remote areas. Our researchers are making outstanding contributions to climate and environmental science, also impacting health and wellbeing. 

Reducing inequalities and widening participation

Through our inclusive values, UOW is increasing participation and attainment among underrepresented groups. We are working to improve access to jobs and training pathways for women, First Nations people, regional Australians, and culturally and linguistically diverse people.
