For High School students

UOW is where you can find your why

As society faces complex social, environmental and economic challenges, we are increasingly defined by our purpose and contribution to the world. So, what contribution will you make? What inspires you? As a global university, we can help you find your why.

Find your why

I work at AIME which is the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience.
My passion is definitely enabling a stronger platform for Indigenous people.
I've had the privilege of a good education, so now I want to pass that opportunity on to kids in the community.

Determination is more than just a mantra here – it’s in our DNA. It’s why our students gave their overall educational experience at UOW the maximum 5-star rating (GUG 2021).

Meet Jordan

I've had so many opportunities [at UOW], including volunteering as a dissector in the anatomy lab, studying in New York for a semester and participating in an internship at the Innovation Campus. It was really cool to be in the presence of leading academics here in Wollongong.JordanBachelor of Medical and Health Sciences (Honours) (Dean's Scholar)
