Located in the heart of Australia's vibrant City of Sydney, UTS College provides pathway programs that prepare students for academic success at university level. Every year more than 5,000 students from more than 75 countries study at UTS College. Students at UTS College take higher education diploma programs, UTS Foundation Studies (Preparation) and English programs.
Diploma programs are designed in collaboration with the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). This means that the education for diploma students is the same as in the first year of students studying in the UTS undergraduate degree program (S1). Students receive the same world-class university standards from the first day of their studies and many of them proceed directly to the second year of a bachelor's degree program* (*depending on the chosen program and no more than two courses are not passed).
There is plenty of support to help international students succeed. Classes are small with no more than 20 students per tutorial. Support services are available free of charge to all UTS College students and include a Learning Support Program, individual tutorials, study skills workshops and a dedicated full-time Learning Success Mentor. This support and state-of-the-art facilities together enhance the student educational experience.
There are many scholarship offers that provide financial support for international students. International students can enjoy a safe and welcoming environment while pursuing academic and career goals. Students can explore the fascinating city and its natural surroundings, as well as enjoy some of the world's most famous attractions, such as the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbor Bridge and Bondi Beach
