UOW COLLEGE AUSTRALIA
The teachers are very helpful and friendly
which makes me happy and the study
easier. The students in my classes are from
many different countries and I believe
making friends and contacts throughout
the world will help me a lot in my future
career. Wollongong is a great place to live
and has Indian restaurants and all the
facilities I need, including a free bus service.
After graduating from my Diploma, I look
forward to starting in the second year of
the Bachelor of Information Technology at
UOW. I am really grateful that UOW College
Australia has helped me to prepare for
Bachelor study and recommend studying
at UOW College Australia to others.
