Career Advisers

Supporting you, and your students.

The UOW Schools Engagement team is dedicated to inspiring every student to make well-informed decisions about their futures by delivering tailored and compelling programs, and providing guidance and information throughout their high school journey.

On this page, you'll find a range of services, resources, and information to help you and your students prepare for university.

If you have questions or would like more information, please reach out to the UOW staff member for your school region.

If your students would like to stay up to date with all things UOW please encourage them sign up to our Future Student Newsletter.

Activities, events, and programs

Our school engagement initiatives encompass three key offerings:

  • Senior Student Support Activities provide intensive and targeted programs for Year 12 students.
  • On campus activities such as UOW Discovery Days, which offers three separate events at selected UOW campuses that offer taster sessions for students in years 8, 10 and 12.
  • In-school, on campus and virtual activities tailored for various stages of the school year, spanning across different disciplines such as STEM, CAPA, English, HSIE and Languages.


Get your school involved

The Schools Engagement Portal is the best place for details on in-school or on campus UOW activities and events such as Discovery Days, Early Admission talks, Campus Tours, support activities, etc. 

Schools Engagement Portal 

The Subject Specific Activities Portal will show you our list of available discipline-specific activities that you can browse and book for your school. 

Subject Specific Activities Portal

When registering for events, you will be prompted to log in with an email and password of your choosing – your login will be the same for both pages, so don’t forget to record your password somewhere safe! This protects your data, and means you’ll be able to log in at any time to add to or change the bookings for your school.

Feel free to share these resources with any of your colleagues, such as subject coordinators, so that they can create their own profile and make bookings for specific classes, groups, etc.
