Meet Liz

I chose to study the University Access Program to brush up on my academic skills and increase my confidence in maths and statistics before continuing on to UOW as a non-school leaver student. I learnt essay writing skills, how to reference and how to analyse academic texts. The small classes, friendly teachers and access to the UOW campus made UOW College such a special place to study.
