    Does that mean an international student who is fluent in English, or does that mean us english speakers being fluent in another language, because I wonder I would be chosen because I speak fluent Icelandic... although it is probably the most useless language in the world with even 80% of Iceland using english instead.

    Not dismissing Icelandic but no, they didn't require such talent.

    You can try out if you can speak both English and another language...on top of my head...Arabic, Chinese, Vi3tnamese, Cantonese....woops i guess al they want are aznz..

    I feel offended by this thread.... Nah just kidding. As others have said, the uni is made up of many races, groups etc. Which is a nice change compared to the sydney uni's. Oh and one more thing, most groups, including my friends aren't all the same at all. Like a group wont consist of all surfies, you might have a couple, plus a few asians, mix a few europeans in, and then cook uncovered for 15 minutes (sorry, but it started sounding like a recipe).
    But yeah, what I'm trying to say is don't not talk to someone just because they aren't what you want. Who knows, you could end up becoming good friends, or they could be really smart and be able to help you out
    Anyway, I'm positive you will fit in just fine. I had the opportunity to transfer to unsw, but I decided to stay because I'm really happy here.
    Good luck.

    Speaking of smelly communists, they should put those pleasant smell things from cars, down in the computer labs in building 3, damn stereotypical poor hygiene nerds... I'm in here, it's 7:30, and I'm over it. I think I'll migrate to the library, where I can breathe!

    Computer lab gnome. Computers smell at uni. Do you know how many germs are in keyboards that get used by everyone? I've read more germs than on a toilet seat. Happy typing

    which is why I don't use the labs that often... I've never really found a need to, to be honest... I guess I'm just not doing a computer nerd orientated course.

    I noticed, but at least they had a Greens candidate in power.

    From what i understand the area is very leftward leaning. One of the reasons why i am looking foward to going there.

    We have an indian society so if you feel like you want to establish your own little india in UOW, you can join them.

    Wollongong is great, but besides the actual university and what I use it for (education and alcohol)... then the entire city isn't to my liking, mostly because there isn't that much to do after you get over Rustys, Glasshouse, Northies and the beach.
