Application assessment process and timeline

UTS application assessment process

To have your application assessed by UTS, follow the steps below:

  1. Attend an information session
    Note: If you wish to go on exchange, you must first attend an information session
  2. After you have attended an information session, you will receive the link to the online application.
  3. Complete your online application and submit the printed copy to UTS International, located on Level 3A of the Tower Building.
  4. You will receive an email from UTS International advising whether you have been successful and informing you of the partner university that will host you.
  5. Accept or decline your offer by the date specified in the email. Failure to do so may result in UTS recommending your offer to the partner institution be withdrawn.
  6. Submit your Study Plan for your study at the host university to the Student Centre for approval.

Note: Applications are ranked by GPA/WAM. If two applicants for the same university have an equal WAM, your personal statement will be assessed to help determine your suitability for the destination.

The Study Abroad and Exchange team Officer will also ask you to fill in your host university’s application forms. Note that while most students' applications are accepted, the host university has the final say in your application outcome.

Late application assessment and timeline

Late applications will only be assessed in the following circumstances and at the discretion of the Study Abroad and Exchange Manager on a case by case basis.

The following circumstances may be considered when accepting a late application:

  1. The student can demonstrate there are extenuating circumstances that prevented them from applying by the official application deadline, e.g. a significant health problem that can be supported with a medical certificate.
  2. The application is received by UTS’s Study Abroad and Exchange team prior to the allocation of the UTS student to a partner university.
  3. The application is received by UTS’s Study Abroad and Exchange team prior to the selected host institution's exchange application deadline.
  4. The student is applying to study at a host institution where places are available.

In these circumstances, the student will be notified of the outcome of the late application submission, two weeks after submission. Furthermore, he or she will receive a written response from the Study Abroad and Exchange Coordinator with the outcome and, if successful, an offer at an allocated partner institution.
