Wollongong is close to everything. Sydney is just over an hour away by train; the Blue Mountains are three hours away; and Canberra, the nation’s capital, is a two and a half hour drive. The beautiful campus, set between the mountains and the sea, allow students easy access to surfing and hiking year-round.

The real appeal, however, is the friendly nature of the campus. It has a regional feel with approximately 20,000 students maintaining a multicultural flavor. A well respected institution, The University of Wollongong received the honor of being placed in the top two percent of universities in the world in the 2009 Times Higher Education Supplement, Quacquarelli Symonds World University Rankings. It is also one of only four universities in Australia to score in the Band A across all four discipline groupings in the Federal Government’s 2009 Learning and Teaching Performance Fund.

So, in a nutshell, for those who like the out-of-doors and like the idea of living on the east coast, close to excellent surf beaches and a thriving local community, Wollongong is the ideal place to study.

— Tonia Gray, Resident Director

Where You'll Study

Where You'll Study

Roughly 80kilometers outside Sydney, the University of Wollongong is rated among the top 2 percent of universities worldwide and is home to international students from more than 140 countries. The scenic location is perfect for study and also offers easy access to Australia’s larger cities.

Close
Housing & Meals

Housing & Meals

You’ll live in one of two residential colleges: International House or Weerona College. The colleges are fully catered and conveniently located. The walk to campus is a short 20 minutes and there is also an express train line to Sydney nearby.

Weerona College and International House offer:

  • A shared study bedroom includes a wardrobe, desk, chair, and bed. Note: Single rooms are available at both residences, but due to high demand, single rooms are not guaranteed.
  • Meals are provided (19 per week). On weekdays, residents prepare their lunch at breakfast, with the option of making sandwiches, salads, etc.
  • Rooms with telephone and Internet connections
  • Laundry facilities on the premises
  • Bed linens are provided by CIEE
  • Computer, study, and meeting rooms
  • Free shuttle bus to and from main campus

All accommodations are nonsmoking.

If you choose the U.S. academic-year program beginning in July, you're responsible for your own housing during the summer recess (December to mid-February). Or, if you select the U.S. calendar year program beginning in February, you're responsible for your own housing during the recess in July.

Orientations

Orientations

study abroad in Australia

You'll begin your study abroad experience in Wollongong before leaving home by participating in a CIEE online predeparture orientation. Meeting with students online, the resident director shares information about the program and the university, highlighting issues that alumni have said are important, and giving you time to ask questions. The online orientation allows you to connect with others in the group, reflect on what you want to get out of the program, and learn what others in the group would like to accomplish. CIEE’s aim for the predeparture orientation is simple: to help you understand more about the program, and identify your objectives. By doing so, you arrive well-informed and return home having made significant progress toward your goals.

A mandatory on-site orientation program, held the week prior to the start of each semester, has three components. The first, provided by the CIEE resident director, includes program details, general academic advice, and visits to places of interest in the region. The second, organized by the university for all new study abroad students, introduces you to the academic requirements of the university; life and “survival skills” in Australia; the region; and campus facilities, services, and other administrative systems. The third, most social component is organized by individual housing complexes. Throughout the program, ongoing support is provided by CIEE staff members (on an individual and group basis).

Internet

Internet

You're encouraged to bring a wireless-enabled laptop. You'll have access to the Internet at your housing, and wireless access is widely available on campus. You'll also have access to email and the Internet at the University of Wollongong, where you'll receive limited free access, but there are fees for use over the allotted amount. CIEE will contribute toward this extra cost.

Culture

Culture

South Coast Excursion

study abroad in Australia

A highlight of the semester is a three-day excursion on the New South Wales South Coast, where you'll be introduced to aboriginal culture, as well as to Australian flora and fauna. You’ll stay in cabins that are located right on the beach and surrounded by a national park. Dolphins and whales sometimes can be seen in the bay, and kangaroos and wallabies freely roam the resort.

You’ll spend a day hiking a sacred, aboriginal mountain. The hike is led by an aboriginal guide who will teach you about Indigenous Australians and their culture. The guide’s insight provides an experience that few Australians ever have. Past participants in the program say the hike had a huge impact.

A local naturalist leads bushwalks, giving you a deeper understanding of local flora, fauna, and geology. You’ll get to enjoy the beautiful surroundings: clear blue waters, sandy beaches, and a nearly pristine coastline.

Academics

Academics

Established in 1997, the Arts and Sciences program at the University of Wollongong allows participants to fulfill home institution major requirements in a variety of fields. You will fully assimilate into university life by studying and living with students from Australia and other countries, and become a part of the melting pot of cultures integral to campus life. You'll benefit academically and personally from the new perspectives, insights, and experiences gained from studying in a genuinely multicultural, but English language-based university.

A range of courses in a variety of disciplines is available from the following faculties: arts, commerce, creative arts, education, engineering, health and behavioral sciences, informatics, law, and science. CIEE students are encouraged to enroll in at least one course with specific Australian content or in a course that offers a distinctive Australian perspective in their area of interest.

Academic Culture

The Australian educational system generally expects self-motivated, independent work from students. American students need to adapt to this learning style and take initiative in classes that do not provide continuous assessment throughout the semester. A typical class requires two or three hours of lectures and one or two hours of tutorials or seminars each week. Science-based subjects normally require an additional three hours of laboratory classes weekly.

The university’s academic year runs from mid-February through mid-November and comprises two main sessions. Session I, from mid-February to late June, corresponds to the U.S. spring semester (known as the University of Wollongong “Autumn Session”). Session II, from mid-July to mid-November, corresponds to the U.S. fall semester (known as the University of Wollongong “Spring Session”). Students attending the University of Wollongong in the U.S. fall semester will finish exams in mid-November. Students in the U.S. spring semester will finish exams in late June.

The program is offered both semesters and consists of a one-week orientation, 13 weeks of classes, a one-week, mid-semester break, a one-week study period, and a two-week final exam period. The academic year program consists of two consecutive semesters and may follow the U.S. academic year (Session II and Session I) or the Australian calendar year (Session I and Session II).

Nature of Classes

Participants enroll directly in host university courses and take classes with Australian and other international students.

Grading System

Assessment is normally based on a mix of essays, project reports, midterm, tutorial/seminar participation and performance, and practical and final exams. Australian universities generally employ the following seven-point grading system: High Distinction (HD) 85-100%; Distinction (D) 75-84%; Credit (C) 65-74%; Pass (P) 50-64%; Pass Terminating or Pass Conceded (PT/PC) 45-49%; Fail (F) 0-44%; and Technical Fail (TF) no mark. Pass Terminating (PT) /Pass Conceded (PC) may not be offered in all faculties. Technical Fail (TF) may be used when a student fails to meet an appropriate assessment level that is required to pass that subject. Grades are converted to a U.S. grading scale.

Note: This course listing is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a contract between CIEE and any applicant, student, institution, or other party. The courses, as described, may be subject to change as a result of ongoing curricular revisions, assignment of lecturers and teaching staff, and program development. Courses may be canceled due to insufficient enrollment.

CIEE Study Center Syllabi

To view the most recent syllabi for courses taught by CIEE at our Study Centers, visit our syllabi site.

University of Wollongong

There are nine faculties at the University of Wollongong. Students may choose a program of study comprising subjects from one or more of the faculties. The subjects listed here are a representative sample of study areas available. A range of subjects (“units”) is available within each area of study. Classes normally meet for 13 weeks. Science students can expect to spend more time in classes and labs. Not all subjects/units are available every semester. Students should consult the University of Wollongong website at www.uow.edu.au/handbook for course details under “subject descriptions.”

Some courses have prerequisites. Students wishing to enroll in such courses must either meet the specified prerequisites or have approval from the head of the relevant academic unit to enroll. In general, evidence of successful completion of a course or courses reasonably similar in content and level at the home institution will satisfy the prerequisite requirement. It is possible that some subjects may not be available to study abroad students due, for example, to enrollment pressures from students in tightly structured programs or with limited places in laboratory classes.
