Be extraordinary.

The University of Wollongong knows employers are constantly on the lookout for extraordinary, well-rounded employees. The university's initiative, UOWx, develops highly competitive graduates with transferable skills that today's employers are looking for in their organisations’.

UOWx is a recognition program designed to encourage and support students to get more involved with the co-curricular activities offered at UOW outside of the classroom.

These activities can include volunteering and paid opportunities at UOW and external activities/learning opportunities to UOW.
