- Careers & Employability services including participating in their workshops and receiving feedback on your resume
- Submitting a final reflective piece demonstrating your learnings from your UOWx journey
- End of Year celebration ceremony to network with fellow Award students, UOW staff and industry

There is a digital certificate provided upon graduation through My eQuals alongside your academic transcript and UOWx Record. There is no physical certificate provided but upon successful completion of the UOWx Award program, there is an end of year celebration event to celebrate your achievements and mingle with other students from the program. The end of year event is typically held at the end of November or early December.

Alongside experiencing unparalleled levels of fun, UOWx helped me: to tap into my leadership and people skills through club activities, volunteering, and mentorship programs; improve my cultural, climate, and sustainability awareness; embrace and take pride in our diversity; and to always innovate. The networking and life lessons from this journey ultimately paid off with multiple lucrative career offers as I graduate now. What more could I ask for!!
