Study Abroad

The UTS Study Abroad program allows students enrolled at UTS to study at any recognised university or college worldwide. For Study Abroad the institution does not have to be a UTS partner. Study Abroad attracts a tuition fee based on the number of subject credit points you study at the other institution.

Summer and winter school

Many of UTS’s partner universities offer ‘for credit’ short-term academic study programs during their summer or winter periods. These programs offer great opportunities for UTS students who may find it difficult to spend an entire session of their course overseas, or who may just want to explore an interesting elective option.

Find out more about the range of exciting summer and winter school options, as well as options to fund your exchange.


Develop your skills, broaden your horizons and build your leadership potential with Beyond UTS International Leadership Development (BUiLD). Opportunities include overseas travel to participate in global conferences, internships, community volunteer projects and short-term study programs.
