Program of study
Study Abroad/Exchange students enrol for one or two sessions as a non-award student at UOW.
The UOW academic year is broken into two sessions (semesters), with students commencing in Session 1 (February) or Session 2 (July). For students studying a postgraduate business program through UOW Sydney Business School, either in Sydney or Wollongong, sessions are broken into trimesters commencing in February, May and August.
You will be required to submit a UOW Study Plan as part of your online application. Once your application has been submitted, your proposed subjects will be assessed based on your academic background prior to your arrival. This will ensure that your enrolment at UOW is an approved program. Whilst every effort is made to obtain approval of selected subjects, this is not guaranteed. Students should be flexible with subject selection, and come prepared with additional subjects they can study while at UOW. Academic advice on your program of study can be obtained from faculty staff during orientation week. We strongly advise that you bring an up-to-date copy of your transcript or academic records from your home university or college, as well as subject outlines, with subject descriptions. It is the responsibility of each applicant to ensure that the proposed program will earn the credits needed to satisfy the authorities at their home university or college.
