Peer Learning Program

The Peer Learning Program provides a supportive learning environment facilitated by Peer Learning Leaders who have previously completed and excelled in UOW College subjects. These leaders are passionate about helping others.

Peer Learning support is available in a range of Academic subjects and Vocational courses. English language students can find support from Peer Learning Leaders in the Learning Hub.

This program reflects our commitment to academic success and student well-being, offering valuable assistance through experienced and accomplished Peer Learning Leaders across a variety of study areas.

I feel it’s very rewarding work and I know when I was a student, I took advantage of the Peer Learning Leaders to help me. The College set me up for success and I tell everyone, even if they don’t need to go through the College they should because it was the foundation that I needed in order to create a bright future for myself.
