Holly Jones, Assistant Director, Food and Nutrition Policy, Department of Health

Public Health provides the opportunity to make improvements in many people’s health and potentially reach people before they require clinical services. The course delivery was flexible, which meant I could balance my study around full-time work. Now I have been able to apply the skills and knowledge I learned in my studies, which has given me greater confidence in my work.

Kay Maddison | Clinical Nurse Consultant – Hand Surgery

Postgraduate study is challenging, however, the experience and knowledge gained far outweighs any negatives. I now have greater confidence to challenge and support colleagues. I also have the skills and knowledge to lead changes in healthcare that improve the industry and foster a truly supportive and compassionate environment for the benefit of healthcare users and providers.

Kama Stokes | Nursing Unit Manager, Prince of Wales Hospital, Sydney

UOW offers online subjects and flexible learning, which helped me a lot when working full-time. I enjoyed taking the time to write the assignments and reflecting on real events that happened in the workplace. I am now a Nurse Unit Manager of a 26-bed unit with an FTE of 45 staff and I often cover the role of Assistant Co-Director of Nursing.

Kieren Corbyn | Assistant School Principal

My degree has been very flexible. Over time I have adjusted both my major and my study loads and I still manage to have a healthy social life and stay active. Some of my study has been face-to-face while some subjects have been largely online. During my studies, I was successful in gaining a promotion to Assistant Principal.

Fiona Darrow | Inspector for SafeWork NSW

The weekly attendance blocks made it easy to coordinate study with working full-time. My career progression has definitely been positively impacted long term as the accreditation of Masters course meant I would be recognised as a safety professional. I think it is about having diversified skills so that you can continually adapt to a changing workplace.

Darren Rawlings

I am currently completing my Masters via online distance education through UOW. Studying by distance has allowed me the flexibility to learn at a pace that suits both my full-time work and family life. Course support from the very knowledgeable staff is only ever an email or phone call away. The new skills I'm acquiring will definitely open doors to future career opportunities.

Anita Rai | Registered Nurse, James Milson Village

I found studying and working full-time wasn’t that hard to manage. I got to know lots of people from different countries with different work experiences and this just strengthened my passion for aged care. I found dementia care extremely interesting to study and, working in an aged care facility, I was able to apply what I learnt straight to my work.

Renee Callender

I was surrounded by passionate and driven tutors and lecturers who are specialists in their fields, and UOW promotes a mature learning environment where tutors and lecturers are open to any question.
I also found that you can really choose to plan your study time around other commitments and this definitely reduces the stress levels.

Leading a national industry group means that I have to be able to manage my team, oversee our core business and also have an eye to the future. I found Sydney Business School to be an outstanding option for my ongoing professional development.
