University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) is a reflection of Sydney’s multicultural diversity. With around 42,600 students from 120 different countries, UTS is an exciting place to be. Each year, UTS welcomes more than 1000 study abroad and exchange students from around the world. UTS take a global approach to education that has innovation at its core. All courses are closely aligned with industry needs, so what you learn will prepare you for your future career.
Your learning at UTS may be different from what you are used to. This is because UTS has flipped the way you learn on its head. No more one-directional lectures or teacher-knows-all, but an approach that put you at the center of your learning experience. This is done through collaborative projects, real-life case studies, and the integration of technology into everyday teaching.
Due to the continued impact of COVID-19, applicants should be aware that changes to academic calendars may occur with little or no notice. Students are encouraged to either wait to book travel or book travel that allows for changes with no financial penalty.
Applicants should also be aware that processing of visas may be impacted or halted by specific countries. Failure to secure the necessary visa may result in inability to participate in this program.
Participants on this program may be required to self-quarantine prior to the start of their program for a specified period of time. Students are responsible for arranging (logistics and financial) their travel appropriately to ensure self-quarantine is completed prior to the start of the program.
UTS has two campuses; City Campus in Ultimo where the majority of subjects are taught and Moore Park Precinct where some Sport and Exercise Science and Management subjects will be based.
A free campus shuttle bus runs between the City campus and Moore Park Precinct. Students with subjects on both campuses should allow travel time between locations when allocating subjects in their timetable.

Australian Required Health Coverage:
As an international student in Australia, you are required to purchase the Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). This is a requirement of the Australian Immigration Department. After accepting your offer from Monash and making the payment for the OSHC, you will receive an electronic Confirmation of Enrollment (eCoE). This document is required to get your student visa.
In order to go abroad, you must have a valid passport
that will not expire during your time abroad or within 6 months upon your return
All students are required to obtain a student visa for a program abroad in Australia. The process is completely online, however it cannot be completed prior to obtaining the electronic Confirmation of Enrollment (eCoE).

Serious applicants should plan to submit a complete, well thought out, and comprehensive application. In the required essay, please focus on sharing your academic, personal and professional goals
and how admission to UTS will help you achieve them.
Students who submit a complete application by the deadline will be granted an interview. Qualified candidates will be nominated to UTS; however, UTS will make the final admission decision. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered.
Participation in the program cannot be guaranteed as there may be a limit on the number of students we can send to UTS in a particular semester. Please ensure that you think critically about your second choice option when completing this portion of your online application.
