Second cohort to begin Bachelor of Arts in Western Civilisation in School of Liberal Arts

The 2021 Ramsay Scholars have been welcomed to UOW to undertake the Bachelor of Arts in Western Civilisation in UOW’s School of Liberal Arts (SOLA), supported by a scholarship funded by the Ramsay Centre for Western Civilisation (RCWC).

28 high achieving students have been selected for the prestigious program’s second intake, coming from as far afield as Launceston, Tasmania and Armidale, NSW, as close by as the Wollongong suburb of Horsley and the Illawarra townships of Kiama and Jamberoo, as well as from across metropolitan Sydney.

While some scholars are undertaking the Bachelor of Arts in Western Civilisation as a single degree, most are coupling it with degrees in Law, International Studies, Creative Arts or Politics, Philosophy and Economics in double degree programs.

All Ramsay Scholars are high-achieving students who have performed well academically and in their interests beyond the classroom. They were selected via a rigorous and comprehensive selection process that included a written application, an essay, an evaluation of their academic performance and an interview.  Throughout the process, the successful applicants demonstrated a genuine desire to study the great works of Western civilisation.
