What does BUiLD involve?

To complete the BUiLD program you need 100 CLiCs (points), which you can earn by participating in a range of activities chosen by you!

On-campus activities make up the core (compulsory) component of your BUiLD program and will prepare you to seek out and embark on elective opportunities. Elective activities are chosen by you and may be completed overseas or in Australia.

When you have completed BUiLD, you will be presented with a certificate signed by Professor William Purcell, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (International and Advancement) at the annual BUiLD Awards Ceremony. Your special achievement of BUiLD will also receive mention on your Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement when you graduate from UTS.
