The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is a vibrant young global university located in a vibrant young global city.
The university is considered among the top 200 universities in the world by both the QS (140th) and Times Higher Education (194th) global rankings, who have also named UTS Australia’s number one young university in each of the past five years.
UTS is widely known for its innovative learning and teaching approach, which integrates the best of online and face-to-face experiences. Students benefit from an immersive career-focused education, coupled with strong links to industry. They’re prepared for tomorrow, in a way which is relevant today.
The university’s inner-city campus has recently been transformed through a $1.5 billion investment, which has delivered four award-winning buildings, including internationally-renowned architect Frank Gehry’s first Australian venture.
Imbued with collaborative spaces and technological capabilities, the distinctive campus is a physical embodiment of UTS’ progressive traits.
Socially and culturally diverse, around 30 per cent of UTS’ 45,000 students originate from overseas. Some of the university’s previous students include actor and producer Hugh Jackman, former Deputy Leader of the Australian Labor Party the Honorable Tanya Plibersek MP, and Sydney Peace Prize winner Sekai Holland.
UTS keeps good company. Over 150 companies partner with UTS, sharing their resources and expertise in exchange for research, innovation programs, development and commercialisation, staff education, and, of course, direct contact with the university’s sought-after students.
The university is also well known for its rich contribution to the research sector. Its research spans a range of disciplines, including health, data sciences, sustainability, applied economics, social futures, robotics, civil engineering, future work, microbiology, and quantum computation. 100 per cent of UTS’ broad fields of research are benchmarked by the Australian Government at world standard or above, while almost 80 per cent of UTS research is assessed at having a ‘high’ impact beyond the academic – the highest proportion in the country.
Above all, UTS believes in the value of real-world experience and innovation for its students, and making a positive impact on the world around it.
