Masterclasses / SOS Series
UWAYE's Masterclasses are designed to allow students to improve on key qualities that are targeted by employers. The Masterclasses are not a new concept from UWAYE, but one that has been reintroduced to due to its effectiveness and impact on those who attend. When you ask people who have been around UWAYE for a while (not only in the committee but general members too), how they got to be involved in UWAYE, may of them cite the UWAYE Masterclasses.
UWAYE are proud to present the Stand Out on Stage (SOS) Short Course as the successor to the Masterclass Series. The Short Course focuses on the improvement of Public Speaking and Presentation skills for participants!
SOS Short Course workshops run fortnightly on Thursdays; the next one being on the 18th of September. They run from 4:00 to 5:30 pm in Law Lecture Room 1. Interested participants should check out the SOS Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/513077875505384/
AFL for Beginners
In partnership with the Claremont Tigers Football Club, the AFL for Beginners Program is an innovative way to introduce all students to the sport and allow previous players to get back into AFL. The program includes opportunities to practice skills and learn the rules of the game whilst promoting an active, well rounded lifestyle at university. This is achieved by providing a platform for students to network and meet new people whilst improving their fitness.
