What makes Sydney, Australia a top study destination?

At the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and UTS College (the pathway to UTS), you’ll enjoy the advantage of Australia’s top ranking young university. That includes the rich culture and warm hospitality of one of the world’s most vibrant cities.

Hyo Kyung Kim, who studied Bachelor of Visual Communication at UTS after completing a Diploma of Design at UTS College, says, “I just love the environment and weather in Sydney, Australia. Its different cultures, with people from many countries, make it really interesting.”

For April Ho, who studied a Bachelor Business at UTS after completing a Diploma of Business at UTS College, being a student in Sydney inspires her every day. “Since I have been in Australia, I have been more creative. I have to make new friends from different countries and cultures, so I learn all different ways to meet new people how to interact with different people.”

Magnificent harbour and natural beauty

Sydney is known for its magnificent harbour and natural beauty. Whether you enjoy an ocean swim, walking or cycling in the fresh air, or a picnic with your friends, it’s easy to enjoy the simple pleasures even in this large and busy city.

Jong Chun Choi, who completed a UTS College Diploma of IT before graduating with a UTS Bachelor of Science in Information Technology, loves the Sydney lifestyle. “It was a very good experience,” he says, “I remember participating in a ski camp and Halloween party. I also taught disabled students how to swim. Everything improved my English and it felt good.”

Leading technology, future focused, and industry relevant

UTS is in the heart of the city’s growing start-up precinct. Students can try out their entrepreneurial ideas with the support of UTS Startups. The lively, modern campus has cutting edge facilities, including the famous UTS Data Arena and Hive Superlab. And with close connections to more than 1000 companies, teaching and research are always future-focused and industry relevant – fostering a strong employment edge.

Entrepreneurial graduates

This sharp focus on the future and cosmopolitan environment inspires graduates such as Terry Kwon, CEO and CTO at Gix Entertainment in South Korea (a business he founded, creating next-generation gaming technology). Terry’s experience in Sydney was formative. He studied a Diploma of IT at UTS College before completing his Bachelor of Science in IT at UTS. “In Australia, I learnt how to collaborate with people from other countries,” he says. “I experienced how they think differently. I learnt to be principle-based and professional.”
