Meet Anthea

I chose UOW because it’s a world-leading university where students are treated as a name and not just another student number. You’re encouraged to be yourself and think critically. Employers don’t want you to be cut from a cookie cutter of business graduates. They want you to be unique and think outside the box. Anthea Faferko Bachelor of Business (Finance) (Dean’s Scholar)
