University of Technology Sydney

At UTS, we think differently.

At UTS, we think differently: we take a global approach to education that has innovation at its core. What’s more, we’re a university for the real world. All our courses are closely aligned with industry need, so what you learn will prepare you for your future career.

We’re a young university, but we’re already making a name for ourselves. We’re the top young university in Australia, according to the QS Top 50 Under 50 2018 and the Times Higher Education Young University rankings 2017 – and we’re ranked #8 (QS) and #15 (THE) globally as well. Not bad for an institution that’s just 30 years old.

We offer more than 130 undergraduate and 180 postgraduate courses across a range of emerging and traditional disciplines:

> Analytics and Data Science
> Business
> Communication
> Creative Intelligence and Innovation
> Design, Architecture and Building
> Education
> Engineering
> Health
> Information Technology
> International Studies
> Science
Transdisciplinary Innovation

We also have a range of research and study abroad programs.

We’re committed to hands-on practical learning – theory is great, but applying what you know is crucial to your success. Major projects, group work and real-life case studies are key to our practice-based approach, and they’ll give you skills you need to impress future employers. We’ve also got the connections that count. Our industry partners help us shape our course content, which means everything you study reflects the real world of work.

We’ve invested $1.3 billion in creating a dynamic and interconnected campus of the future, with tech-driven, purpose-built spaces that’ll inspire you to learn. Take advantage of our extensive student spaces, relax on the Alumni Green, and make the most of living in one of the world’s great cities. Are you the entrepreneurial type? We’re surrounded by Sydney’s creative and digital industries, so you could be learning next door to and collaborating with some of the big names in your field.

Life in a new city can be challenging – but we provide support services to help you along the way. We provide the essentials – health and counselling, academic support and English language tutoring – as well as some added extras, like careers preparation, housing assistance and a wealth of sporting and social events. And we’re making a big investment: over the next five years, we’ll be spending $30 million on scholarships and grants for high-achieving international students.

We’re collaborative too – we work closely with industry and academic partners across the globe to drive meaningful change in the world around us.
