UOW handbook

The Handbook is where you can find important information about the requirements to complete your course. It will include the subjects you need to complete, any minors, majors or specialisations offered, the order in which you should take your subjects, and any other requirements specific to your course.

You need to follow and complete the requirements of the handbook from the year you commenced your course.

If you need academic advice regarding your course, please contact your Faculty (see individual course handbooks for contact details).

For general enquiries, please contact askuow@uow.edu.au

New Handbook for 2021 and future years

If you commenced your course in 2021 (or later years), use the new handbook to view the requirements of your course, subjects, and any minors, majors or specialisations. The Handbook User Guide provides instructions about how to use the new handbook.

During the first half of 2021, the University will provide for dual delivery of courses (a mix of face-to-face and remote learning), allowing us to maximise the number of on-campus classes while still prioritising the safety of our students and staff. For subject availability and how classes will be delivered, refer to the 2021 Timetable.
