University of Wollongong opens Liverpool campus as Western Sydney University plans for 2018

THE University of Wollongong celebrated its official opening in Liverpool this week but Western Sydney University is hot on its heels, with its teaching campus due to open early in 2018.

As the two battle to cement their place in Sydney’s southwest, it is Liverpool’s residents who will benefit from their presence.

UOW already has students enrolled in arts, business, business information systems, computer science and information technology while WSU plans to provide a suite of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in business, information technology and health.

It will also offer its college — a range of diploma programs which gives students direct entry to the second year of a WSU degree upon completion.
