                          During my Graduate Diploma in Work Health
                          and Safety, I found the block weeks per subject
                          were great and the flexibility allowed me to
                          continue working full-time while studying.

                          I’ve never met more passionate academics
                          than those within UOW’s Work Health and
                          Safety program. They're so enthusiastic about
                          their field of work which excited me about
                          my career.

                          Through the networking opportunities
                          provided, I was successful in beginning my
                          career in this industry while I was doing the
