In2Uni – Year 6
The Kids In2Uni Program is for students at UOW’s In2Uni sponsored schools. This program is for Stage 3 students and aims to start the conversation with students about higher education. It gives students the opportunity to experience university, interact with university students and staff and think about why they might like to consider study beyond school.
Kids In2Uni is a five-week teacher delivered module that links to the NSW Curriculum. The program involves:
A unit of work delivered by trained primary school teaching staff; and
A visit to the University of Wollongong campuses by students, parents and teachers, where they will participate in ‘taster sessions’ and aspiration supporting activities. Students will have the opportunity to discover what a university campus is ‘really’ like, understand how classes operate and experience the diverse range of opportunities that are available when studying at university.
This model is designed to provide students, parents and teachers with a positive connection to UOW and to ‘taste’ university life.
