Our purpose is to be the stepping stone to get you from where you are now into that degree and onto your career. 

At the pathway to uni UOW College is a very good program. 

The students, when they graduate, they will become global citizens. 

The uni study, we all know is kind of hard and difficult. Study in the College really helps you to slowly step into the uni study 

There's foundation studies courses, which lead to a range of degrees offered at the university. Beyond that we have a number of higher education diploma courses in business, engineering and IT, where students can do a diploma with us and can enter second year of their degree at the university. 

We teach them English, but not just language, but also teach them how to live. 

All the teachers give me a lot of support. They said, don't be shy. If you have any questions, just come to ask me. 

We can communicate with our teachers through emails, through facilities, which are provided by UOW. 

My favourite memory at UOW College is PASS classes. The one who was managing those classes were the students from the university, and they were helpful to overcome issues. 

The teachers here are not only all well qualified for what they do, but they care. There are a range of support services, both academic and counselling that are there to help students. If they require it. 

We have teachers from different cultural background and it's really a culturally diversified community. 

During my time at UOW College I made a lot of friends from Australia, Korea and Middle East. 

They all are from different culture. Some are from China and some are from Vietnam. So it's really great that I'm not alone here. 

The College is located on the University of Wollongong campus and the students have access to all the same facilities. 

It has swimming pool and the gym. It provides really good place to enjoy other things instead of studies. 

Wollongong is really beautiful city. You know, the beaches, the mountain, even the campus itself, it's just fabulous. Compared to Sydney, living in Wollongong saves you tonnes of money. Not only in the accommodation, but also the transportation, the food, everything. 

Student accommodation is very convenient because when students come here, they live next to campus in university and in the campus, it is very safe. 

UOW College life is fantastic. It is really enjoyable and fun. 

Every day, a range of social activities for students to engage in. The real purpose of these is so that students can mix with each other. It allows them to integrate better with the life of the College. It really improves their confidence and their performance in class. 

I have seen the people who have not done College and who have done it, and it's a big difference. College was a stepping stone for me to get into the university and it boosts your confidence to interact with other community and other people. 

The courses I've taken has given me a huge improve for my English and leads me to firmly step into the p industry. With the help of the College and uni, I have been able to get a job and I started my family here. 

UOW College actually changed me a lot. I'm enjoying study and also it helps me become a better person. 

My scholarship helps me to focus more on my study and to apply my dream job. 

My UOW experience is just awesome. It is helping me to achieve my dreams and it also giving me a lifetime experience.
