Why study at UTS?
As a UTS graduate, you'll have the edge on many other graduates because you will already know how things are done in the real world.
For quality teaching
UTS lecturers focus on not only providing you with vocational information that is current and relevant in our fast-paced society, but they will also teach you how to think constructively – a skill which can be transferred to any discipline and is invaluable in any job.
Our lecturers are at the forefront of research in their areas of expertise. They are passionate about their disciplines, and passionate about sharing their knowledge with you. But most importantly, they are friendly and approachable, so you won't feel like you're studying alone.
For practical experience
You shouldn't have to do a tonne of classroom theory only to relearn it all when you go out to work!
UTS courses are planned and taught with an impressive range of big companies, and through them you can get hands-on experience to make sure you have the practical skills and confidence to get straight into the career you want.
Surveys have shown that UTS graduates are popular with employers and, that they have high rates of employment and high starting salaries in Australia. (2009 Australian Graduate Survey, Graduate Careers Australia)
For industry connections
UTS encourages you to work with its industry partners in every field, who range from corporates, government and community bodies to small and medium enterprises. It gives you real insight into your industry, ammunition for your CV and contacts in those companies to use when you graduate – or before.
For a broader education
UTS encourages you to go beyond your discipline.
You can combine your degree to broaden your career goals, or just take interesting electives outside your field of study.
You can even study in another country through the international exchange and study abroad programs, and combining with International Studies gives you a whole year abroad and another language – which is a big plus in today's globalised economy.
You don't have to study full-time, Monday to Friday!
Flexible timetabling means you can develop your schedule around when UTS offers the subjects you want to take. Some classes are taught in a couple of different time slots each week, and you may be given the option to choose evening classes, summer school or block courses.
You can also go part-time if you start working or have other commitments.
There's a lot of support for every aspect of university life at UTS.
Academic assistance is available of course, but there are also services that help you with housing, money, friends, health, cultural issues and career prospects.
For social life
University isn't just academic – it's also about meeting new people, trying new things and keeping up your other interests.
You can also go beyond campus with the many one-off adventure activities and organised trips out of the city, so there's no chance to get bored!
For the location
The UTS City campus is right by Sydney's Central station, which is very easy to get to.
You can walk in 10 minutes to inner city places like Ultimo, Glebe, Chinatown and Chippendale.
Lots of students live around the local area, and it's full of places to eat, shop and hang out – perfect if you've got a big gap between lectures.
It's a short bus ride to Newtown, Darling Harbour, Circular Quay and the CBD , and it's also easy to get away to the beach or Blue Mountains for the day or the weekend.
For the future
When you graduate, you'll find that your knowledge is relevant, your skills are valid, and that you have a good background in the important current issues in your field.
UTS also has a focus on sustainability, which is important not just for your career but for the way we do everything in the future.
What you learn at UTS won't just help you get into the graduate job you want, it will also teach you how to learn, and to keep learning throughout your career..
