Courses & study options

Writing was always a novelty. I didn’t realise it was a possible career for me until I went to UOW.Bettina TyrrelJunior sub-editor/ feature writer, Home Beautiful, Pacific Magazines
My experience with my teachers is what I valued most while studying journalism. They were supportive, patient, passionate and talented, and I have so much respect for them and their work. My teachers gave me the opportunities to connect to the industry and the survival skills to stay in it.
