Students benefit from an environment that is committed to providing high academic achievement, involvement, development and fun. The community culture in each residence provides a vibrant atmosphere with many social, cultural, sporting and other activities on offer.

If you are thinking of living at UOW, it is important to apply online early as demand for accommodation is high. Make sure you read the conditions for guaranteed accommodation in 2021.

One alternative to taking a gap year is to consider the International Exchange Program. If you’re interested in travelling, UOW offers a range of options including short overseas courses to fully international degrees, meaning you can choose to learn in another country for a few months to a few years.

By taking advantage of UOW’s 190 study abroad and exchange links in 45 countries, you can explore the globe while you study. Students can access a UOW Travel Grant or more than $14,000 in an OS-HELP loan to assist with one year of overseas study (this can be added to your HECS-HELP). Subjects taken offshore can be credited towards your UOW degree, so you can still graduate at the same time as your peers.

International Exchange Program
