Honours and Advanced degrees

An Honours or Advanced degree is recognised as a qualification above and beyond a Bachelor degree. At UOW, Honours are either integrated into a degree, or are taken as an additional one-year program after completing a Bachelor degree. Advanced degrees are highly responsive to your interests and provide opportunities to participate in research projects. An additional Honours year is offered in most disciplines.

Dean's Scholar and Scholar degrees

Dean’s Scholar and Scholar degrees give high-achievers opportunities to excel. They are built on standard Bachelor degrees and give you the chance to be paired with an academic mentor in your faculty. Scholars will have opportunities to tailor their studies to their interests, and may be able to accelerate their degrees.

Management Cadetships

Did you know you could be paid to work while you study? And have your tuition fees covered? If you have strong communication skills, and can demonstrate initiative and creativity, you should consider applying for a UOW Management Cadetship. The Cadetship program provides opportunities for successful applicants to combine paid work at UOW with their study. Working in a professional environment while studying has provided our Cadets with employment experience that has helped them become very successful in their graduate employment positions.
