Join an interactive seminar
The UOWx interactive seminars are an opportunity for students to engage in practical activities to hone key employability skills. Each two hour interactive seminar focuses on a different topic area, aiming to address skills that are in-demand in the job market. The interactive seminars are delivered by leading industry or community guests and are attended by UOW students, staff and alumni. In 2022, these seminars will be delivered virtually and can be attended by any student studying at any campus.
Not able to attend an interactive seminar? The UOWx online interactive seminars are a great opportunity to learn new skills and gain access to the UOWx online student community. There are seven self-paced interactive seminars available online, with each seminar taking about two hours to complete. The online interactive seminars are hosted through Moodle and you will need to self-enrol into the site.
