The University of Wollongong’s South Western Sydney campus at Liverpool is where the region’s best and brightest can earn an internationally recognised degree—without having to travel. This campus is the first major university campus in Liverpool and builds on an already thriving relationship between UOW and the Great South West.
Opened in February 2017, the new campus occupies two floors in the Liverpool City Council’s Moore Street building. We offer programs reflecting Liverpool residents’ preferences, spanning disciplines from the UOW’s Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts, Faculty of Business, Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences and Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health; as well as UOW College university entry and vocational training programs.
This campus represents a major, long-term commitment by UOW to the Liverpool region. With a vision to create a bustling, contemporary city campus home to over 7,000 students by 2030, the campus will generate a significant number of new jobs and contribute to the activation of the city centre.
Pro Vice-Chancellor (South Western Sydney)
Professor Colin Picker has been appointed to the newly created senior leadership position of Pro Vice-Chancellor (South Western Sydney). Professor Picker brings 18 years of experience in higher education, creating and providing leadership in international networks across America, Asia, Latin America, Africa and South East Asia.
The Pro Vice-Chancellor (South Western Sydney) will be responsible for the development of the Academic, Research, and Community and Industry Engagement strategies for the SWS campus. Under the leadership of the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Health and Communities), and working with the Academic Director (Metropolitan Campuses), the role will augment the work of the SWS leadership team in growing a vibrant and dynamic UOW campus which meets the needs of the South Western Sydney region.
Western Sydney Nursing Education and Research Centre (WeSNER)
Along with the new campus, the University will establish the Western Sydney Nursing Education and Research Centre (WeSNER) to train the next generation of nurses and encourage them to study, train and work in the Liverpool area. Due to commence in 2019, WeSNER will be UOW’s sixth nursing training facility, and be similar in size and standard as the nursing school currently operating on the main Wollongong Campus. Students will benefit from UOW’s experience delivering nursing and health care education tailored to local health needs in rural, regional, metro and outer-metro communities.
Liverpool is booming, and the opportunities in the city are increasing every year. Through UOW South Western Sydney, people in the region will get the world-class education they need to make the most of these opportunities.
