The University of Wollongong (UOW), informally known as Wollongong University, is an Australian public research university located in the coastal city of Wollongong, New South Wales, approximately 80 kilometres south of Sydney. As of 2014 the university has an enrolment of over 30,000 students (including over 12,800 international students from 134 countries), an alumni base of over 112,000 and over 2,000 academic related staff. As of 2015, Wollongong consistently ranks among the top 2% of universities in the world. In 1951 a division of the New South Wales University of Technology (known as the University of New South Wales from 1958) was established at Wollongong for the conduct of diploma courses. In 1961 the Wollongong University College of the University of New South Wales was constituted and the college was officially opened in 1962. In 1975 the University of Wollongong was established as an independent institution. Since its establishment, the university has conferred more than 100,000 degrees, diplomas and certificates. Its students, originally predominantly from the local Illawarra region, are now from over 140 countries, with international students accounting for more than 30 percent of total. The University of Wollongong has fundamentally developed into a multi-campus institution, three of which are in the Illawarra (Wollongong, Shoalhaven and Innovation Campus in North Wollongong), one in Sydney and one overseas in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The Wollongong campus, the university's main campus, is on the original site five kilometres north-west of the city centre, and covers an area of 82.4 hectares with 94 permanent buildings including six student residences. In addition, there are university education centres in Bega, Batemans Bay, Moss Vale and Loftus as well as the Sydney Business School in the City of Sydney.

University Of Wollongong, Wollongong Reviews - Write a Review
I have been supporting University of Wollongong over the past few years on engineering simulation and how to extend the capability in the betterment of society. I must agree the facility that has been created within the uni is second to none. It has sophisticated robotic cells, well equipped manufacturing facility, well established laboratories all within the campus. The executive team is well aware of the current needs of the industry and are not leaving any stone un-turned . All the best.
This school does not wish for their students to graduate. All the 1* reviews are more genuine than the 5* ones, since the 5* ones offer nothing but a mere generic statement saying how great the school is compared to any other school. I was a student here 4 years ago, and the teachers did nothing but create problems for me. I knew what I was doing. I was an international student but I had a solid English background. However, the teachers constantly oppressed the student, ensuring that they do not score above 70%. It's almost a trend throughout the school, and the vast majority of students acknowledge this. Furthermore, when you ask the teachers to give you a reason for his/her unreasonable grading, he/she will just get mad and give you some bad reason such as "the whole essay is wrong", or "the formatting is entirely wrong".
Greedy institution. It all comes down to money with this university. Excessive fees, mismanagement of one's privacy by incompetent staff members and a terrible administration that can never have anything done correctly and on time. Very disappointing!
As an international student (especially from Middle East) never waste your money and time at the UOW college. If you have any possibility of studying English in your country just, do it. At the college, staffs look at your pocket not on your personality or academic capabilities (have a look on "Don't insist on English!" at TED Talk). If you could not get credit, then they will be very happy because it will be a new opportunity for them to take the money from you. One of our teachers at the college emphasized on this reality.
Great place to take kids up to 10years loved their market centre for the kids to engage in pretend play with the shopping trolleys and working cash registers. Educators awesome place for an excursion for preschoolers.
