From enrolment to graduation, Pulse is here to make the student experience at UOW a fun and memorable one. Pulse offers a range of entertainment and unique experiences for students to engage within their community and gain valuable skills and outcomes through volunteering programs, wellness workshops and events as well as student-led sports activities and more.
Pulse is proudly a Child Safe Organisation. We have adopted the National Child Safe Standards and we have extensive policies and practices in place to protect children and keep them safe. A child safe organisation puts the best interests of children and young people first.
“A child safe organisation means that the place where our children spend time is safe from physical, sexual, psychological, ill-treatment and neglect. A child safe place will have established rules to make sure children and young people are kept safe” (Office of the Children’s Guardian).
