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
course, which has now led me to bigger and
more interesting opportunities.
