Activities, events, and programs

Our school engagement initiatives encompass three key offerings:

  • On campus activities such as UOW Discovery Days, which offers three separate events at selected UOW campuses that offer taster sessions for students in years 8, 10 and 12.
  • In-school, on campus and virtual activities tailored for various stages of the school year, spanning across different disciplines such as STEM, CAPA, English, HSIE and Languages.

Get your school involved

The UOW Schools Engagement team coordinate a range of activities and events for your students both on-campus and at your school. These include UOW Discovery Days, Early Admission workshops, Year 10 Subject selection presentations, Information evenings, Uni 101 presentations and personalised consultations, to name a few! We are here to support your students as they research their options after high school and can work with you to meet your school requirements.
