The NSW South Coast, which stretches from Wollongong in the north to Eden in the far south, offers the best of Australia in one stunning location. With pristine beaches, mountains and marine parks and beautiful coastal towns and villages, the region offers an authentic Australian experience. A healthy outdoors lifestyle rich in wildlife and cultural diversity is combined with exceptional work and study opportunities across sectors including IT, health and medicine, business and engineering. One of the world’s highest-ranked study institutions, the University of Wollongong, is based here.
Between study and work, enjoy water-sports, hiking, cycling and whale-watching, or plan culinary journeys to the region’s famous food and wine producers (eating some of the region’s famous Sydney Rock Oysters straight from the water is an unforgettable experience).

You don’t need to be in a big city to earn a world-class qualification. At the heart of the South Coast is the city of Wollongong, less than 90 minutes’ drive from Sydney. Wollongong offers a safe, relaxed, coastal lifestyle within easy connections to Australia’s most famous city. It is also home to the University of Wollongong (UoW), ranked among the world’s top 200 universities. UoW’s cutting-edge Innovation Campus is a major contributor to increased business investment and job creation in the region — opening up high-value opportunities for students seeking work-integrated learning and post-study career choices.
