Mature Age Students

Welcome to the University of Wollongong!

Starting or returning to tertiary study as a mature age student will present you with a range of new and exciting challenges. Adjusting to the new expectations of being a student and juggling course commitments with the demands of work and family life can be an overwhelming experience. Despite this, mature age students do equally as well as other students.

This site has been designed specifically to connect you with the range of support services to help you transition into University life. We hope you find this website helpful, giving you the information to succeed with your studies and enhance your UOW experience.
