At the University of Wollongong (UOW), we’re proud to be among the best modern universities in the world. We’re ranked in the world’s top 200 universities and 6th for social and economic impact in the global THE Impact rankings, which benchmarks universities against the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Our graduates are ethical, mobile, technologically literate, and the most employable in Australia, as recently highlighted in The Australian Government’s Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) Employer Satisfaction Survey, which UOW rated highest for the employability of its graduates.
Our vision is to inspire a better future through education, research and partnership. Three goals drive us towards our purpose; empowering students for their future, creating knowledge for a better world and making a difference for our communities.
UOW has a strong international focus and reputation, delivering world-class teaching to approximately 7,000 students globally, including at our campuses in the United Arab Emirates, Hong Kong and Malaysia, and teaching locations in China and Singapore.
