University of Technology Sydney



The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is one of the world's top 200 universities (Times Higher Education Rankings 2019) and based in the vibrant Australian city of Sydney.

Its main campus has been transformed in recent years by over AUD 1 billion investment, creating state-of-the-art facilities in the heart of Sydney's central business district. This location gives outstanding industry access and a creative hub, but is also a convenient location for students to enjoy one of the most famous cities in the world.

UTS was only established in 1988 but has rapidly become a leading university, gaining recognition for its practice-based teaching and learning with an industry focus and use of real-world research. It is the No.1 Young University in Australia and 16th best Young University worldwide (Times Higher Education Rankings).

The university is based on a vision and commitment to provide lifetime learning to students, giving them the skills to become innovative, leading professionals throughout their working lives. Many graduates have gone on to achieve remarkable industry success after leaving UTS.

UTS is one of four prominent universities making up the Australian Technology Network and committing to delivering practical and professional courses by working with industry and government. Over 130 undergraduate and 180 postgraduate courses are offered to the 40,000 enrolled students, ranging from traditional subjects to emerging disciplines, but all with a focus on undertaking professional practice during study.

Students have access to world-leading research centres and strong relationships with local community, industry, businesses and professions to help connect them with the job market they will enter upon completing their studies.
