I enjoyed everything about studying at UOW College. The teachers were all great as were the PASS leaders, but I particularly enjoyed class discussions on interesting topics. I also really enjoyed the social aspect of the course, as I made good friends and we went to lunches and formed study groups together.ElizabethUniversity Access Program - Bachelor of Arts (Psychology)
