Education is one of the most powerful forces in the world. It opens minds and helps people find purpose, meaning—and solutions.
The University of Wollongong was built on this principle, and in the 40 years since its independence, UOW has become a benchmark for Australia’s new generation of universities.
We’ve earned a place among the top 20 modern universities in the world through world-class research and teaching and we routinely rate among the top Australian universities in key areas including graduate satisfaction and starting salaries.
Employment outcomes that empower our graduates to make a lasting impact around the globe are the reason why the 2016 Good Universities Guide is important to us. For the 15th year in a row UOW has received five stars for graduates getting a full time job.
We work with academic and industry partners to solve the world’s toughest problems, from food security and economic turmoil to climate change and disease. UOW’s 127,000 alumni are also making their mark on the world, as leaders in business, IT, engineering, the arts, science, medical science, law, education and more.
As the Australasian member of the University Global Partnership Network, the University’s strong international outlook is demonstrated by partnerships with peers and industry, government, and community based organisations around the world.
The University of Wollongong in Dubai celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2013, and our partners are delivering UOW degrees in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
