In our globalised world, the ability to negotiate, trade, and collaborate across cultures is critical. You can turn your curiosity about international cultures into a set of skills that could take you anywhere in the world. Choose your international path at UOW, and you could learn a language, investigate how cultural differences impact issues that span borders, and develop solutions that address world issues.

I studied abroad in France and New Caledonia where I realised how important knowing another language is. Language can open so many professional doors and demonstrates to employers that you have a long-term vision and can work towards achieving a goal.
