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 a 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 QS World University Rankings Graduate Employers survey is important to us. For the ninth year UOW is ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world based on employers’ opinions of our graduates.


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 131,000 alumni are also making their mark on the world, as leaders in business, IT, engineering, the arts, science, medical science, law, education and more.


The University’s strong international outlook is demonstrated by partnerships with our peers, industry, government, and community based organisations around the world. We work closely with our partners in Dubai, Singapore, Malaysia, China and Hong Kong to develop an international network of graduates ready to change the world.
