Welcome to UOW

You now stand at the start of what is going to be quite an adventure. You might be itching to get started, or perhaps you’re feeling a little nervous; meeting new people, making friends and going with the flow are your biggest allies when you start at uni. I remember when I started, I was in a new place, surrounded by strangers and felt a bit lonely. This won’t last! Instead, get your A-game on, whip out a smile and enjoy it – your best times lie ahead.David Barnott-ClementBachelor of Communication - Bachelor of Science
