The University of Wollongong traces its origins to 1951 when a Division of the then New South Wales University of Technology was established in Wollongong.
Ten years later the Division became the Wollongong College of the University of New South Wales and, in 1975, the University of Wollongong was incorporated by the Parliament of New South Wales as an independent institution. In 1982, the University amalgamated with the Wollongong Institute of Higher Education, which had begun life in 1962 as the Wollongong Teachers' College. The merger sparked a period of rapid growth for the University, and the emergence of a distinctive identity based on a personalised style and a reputation for excellence in teaching and research.
Originally established as a provider of technical education for engineers and metallurgists required for the region's steel industry, the University now offers a wide range of courses across five faculties: Law, Humanities and the Arts; Social Sciences; Science, Medicine and Health; Engineering and Information Sciences; and Business.
Since its foundation, the University has awarded more than 120,000 degrees, diplomas and certificates. Its student population, originally drawn predominantly from the local Illawarra region, is now comprised of students from over 140 nationalities with international students accounting for more than 30 percent of total enrolments. The University has also increased the reach of its offerings, establishing the University of Wollongong in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates in 1993, and UOW Shoalhaven in Nowra on the New South Wales South Coast in 2000. In addition, there are UOW campuses in Bega, Batemans Bay, the Southern Highlands and Southern Sydney, as well as the Sydney Business School located in the heart on Sydney. The University also offers courses in conjunction with partner institutions in a number of offshore locations including Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong.
The first building established on the Wollongong Innovation Campus, iC Central, was opened by then NSW Premier Morris Iemma in 2008. Innovation Campus (iC) is a 33 hectare research and commercial precinct in North Wollongong. Designed to drive partnerships and collaboration between the research and business communities, iC offers space where commercial and research organisations can work together in contemporary facilities. The first sod was turned on the $20 million iAccelerate building in 2014, which when complete, will offer space for up to 200 budding entrepreneurs to develop their ideas.
In Australia each institution has its own application procedures and admission requirements so il would be better to contact your chosen university for an application form. To study here you'll need to apply for both admission to an institution and also for a student visa from the Australian Government so it's necessery to carefully check student visa information on the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
Entry requirements can include: the academic requirements, evidence of funds to support your study and overseas student health cover. The academic requirements you need to study in Australia depend on the level of education you want to study. Indeed, in some cases, you may need to present your results of an English language test.
You can choose up to six courses in your application. Each university you've applied to consider your application separately. This means that you may receive an offer from each course that you include in your application.
