Overview

Located in the vibrant city of Sydney in Australia, UTS College provides pathway programs that prepare students for academic success at university. Each year more than 5,000 students from over 75 countries study at UTS College. Students undertake higher education diplomas, UTS Foundation Studies and English language programs.

Diploma courses are designed in collaboration with UTS. This means the educational outcomes for diploma students are the same as for first year students studying a UTS undergraduate degree. Students receive the same world-class university standards from day one of their studies and many enter directly into second year of a bachelor’s degree* (*depending on course chosen and no more than two subject failures).

There’s plenty of support to help international students succeed. Classes are small in size with no more than 20 students per tutorial. Support services are freely accessible to all UTS College students and include the Learning Support Program, one-on-one tutorials, study skills workshops, and full-time dedicated Study Success Advisers. The support along with state-of-the-art facilities collectively enhance the student educational experience.

There are also numerous scholarships on offer that provide financial support to international students. International students can enjoy a safe and welcoming environment while working towards academic and career goals. Students can explore the exciting city and its natural surroundings and take in some of the world’s most famous landmarks such as the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge and Bondi Beach.
