Hi. My name is Heather Thomas. I'm the director of global programs and deputy general manager at UOW College Australia based at the University of Wollongong.

We are so proud to be partnering with the team from The World Grad in the delivery of the Global Online Accelerator Program. This course enables you to start your diploma studies in either business or information technology right in your own home, and then come to complete your diploma studies with us at the College and then go on to the second year of your undergraduate program at the university.

We've been so impressed with the high quality of the work that we've been doing with The World Grad. Exceptional teachers, fabulous support, staff and the online content is just of the highest possible standard. This enables you to study in your own time but adds in lectures and workshops and one-to-one consultation with teachers to guide you through your program.

It's all quality assured by UOW College Australia and we work with The World Grad to make sure that the content and the assessments, every part of it, meets the high standards required by the University of Wollongong. And you will get full credit for these subjects towards your university study.

I would really encourage you to join the amazing students that have started this program. We've been so impressed with the quality of students and i really want to congratulate them on the hard work that they're doing. Why don't you think about joining them in this program which is the first of its kind for us.
