First Gen - a trailblazer; a person who is among the first generation in their family to attend higher education.
There is something special about being the first. First on the moon, first female prime minister and being among the first in your family to attend university but it’s not always easy. First Gen is all about celebrating and empowering UOW students who are the first in their immediate family to attend university. Be supported throughout your university journey by connecting with other First Gen students and staff, accessing tailored resources, and attending First Gen celebration events.
