UOW Discovery Day

Year 12 recently visited the University of Wollongong to get a taste of University life. The day included various departments presenting lectures on an area of interest related to their subject such as; How to fall in love, survive at work, and predict the future (Sociology), What can we do with media? (Communication & Media), Getting a Head Start: Sports Psychology and its Applications, and Bio-molecular Physicists: A new and powerful generation of Scientists.

The purpose of the day was for students to start thinking about their post school options. For some, the day may have reinforced their desire to go to University whilst others may now feel that other educational or work pathways are what they seek. By having a sneak preview of what 2021 may look like, hopefully students will be able to aim for it, set their goals to achieve those aims and maximise their time left at High School to achieve the results necessary to see these aims come to fruition.
