University of Technology Sydney


The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is a vibrant young global university located in a young global city in Australia.

The university is considered among the top 200 universities in the world by both the QS (137th) and Times Higher Education (133rd) global rankings. QS has also named UTS as Australia’s number one young university in the past seven 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 that 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.

Imbedded with collaborative spaces and technological capabilities, the distinctive campus embodies UTS’ progressive traits.

UTS research spans a range of disciplines, including computer science, artificial intelligence, 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 in making a positive impact on the world around it.
