Program Description

About the University
Idyllically set between the Illawarra Mountain Range and the Tasman Sea, around fifty miles south of Sydney, the University of Wollongong (UoW) is a perfect setting for students who enjoy the outdoors. It's also the perfect setting for students seeking to study in a smaller city.  

A broad range of study areas are available to study abroad students. Among these, psychology has proven to be popular as these courses align more closely with the curriculum at American universities than those at other Australian universities.  Course in the STEM fields, Communications and Business are also readily available.

About the Area
The City of Wollongong is Australia’s tenth largest city and its nearly 300,000 residents get the best of urban living and coastal relaxation just 80km from Sydney.
Here on the south coast of New South Wales at the foot of the Illawarra Escarpment, the city enjoys a pleasant climate, averaging 25°C in summer and 17°C in winter. 
The City itself has a vibrant, youthful culture of arts, culture and nightlife. It’s a student city and has a long multicultural history, so down time in Wollongong is a mix of music, food and languages from all over the world. 

For nature lovers, the Illawarra region has some of the most pristine beaches in Australia and a great network of mountain walking trails with dazzling views of the coastline. Keeping healthy has rarely looked so good—with running tracks by the sea, bike trails through the mountains and clean Pacific waters to swim in.

About Student Life
Outside of the classroom, you'll quickly become part of campus life. The Student Union coordinates clubs and societies and organizes live bands, movies, and theater on campus. You'll also find some of the best athletic facilities of any Australian university. Shops as well as cafés and restaurants are also interspersed throughout campus and you'll find students constantly relaxing on the green lawns, under shady trees or by the creek. On campus, you will enjoy all of the facilities, while surrounded by running streams, native flora and fauna, and tropical birds. Beyond campus, you'll be able to take advantage of hiking trails which extend into the mountains or to the sea.
