The Future Me Program taught me a lot of lessons and useful information about attending uni in general, and specifically how to apply for Early Admission at UOW. No one in my whole family has ever been to uni, so this program really helped me gain knowledge and a feel for what maybe uni would be like! 2024 Future Me Program participant
