Overview

Located in the vibrant city of Sydney in Australia, UTS College offers dedicated pathway programs to prepare students for academic success at university, providing a guaranteed* path to a UTS degree. Students can undertake higher education diplomas, graduate certificates, UTS Foundation Studies and English language programs.

Support services are freely accessible to all UTS College students and include the Learning Support Program, one-on-one tutorials, study skills workshops, full-time dedicated Study Success Advisers, the HELPS Centre and Studiosity 24/7 online study help with live tutors.

UTS College offers numerous scholarships providing financial support to international students. International students can enjoy a safe and welcoming environment while working towards academic and career goals.
