More than 34 agent representatives from six key student recruitment markets including India, Nepal, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Middle East and Vietnam recently visited UOW and the Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences to learn more about the University and what prospective international students can expect to experience when they choose to study at UOW.
The agents attended a Faculty briefing session conducted by our Associate Dean International, Prof. Christian Ritz, and Technical Operations Manager, Ron Marshall, led a tour of our labs and facilities. Agents were given the opportunity to speak to current international students and staff members, and were taken on tours of the Innovation Campus and South Western Sydney campus to gather knowledge on our courses and facilities to take back home.
The purpose of this event was to showcase our campuses and promote UOW as the preferred study destination for future international students to agents. For many of the agents this was the first time they have travelled to Australia. Agent representatives were selected on the basis of past student recruitment performance and potential to grow market shares from their countries in the future.
