This course is offered jointly by UTS: Information Technology and UTS: Business and is awarded with two testamurs. The information technology component provides a sound education in all aspects of computing and information technology for students who intend to make a career in the profession. The business component provides students with the knowledge, competencies and values necessary for fulfilling an effective career in business.
Graduates with solid IT skills who also understand business operations are in strong demand in industry. This combined program allows students to gain two degrees, leading towards a career in business IT operations in only four years.
The aim of this course is to prepare graduates to apply an in-depth knowledge of information technology to the business activities of an organisation.
All students at UTS pay tuition fees to contribute towards the cost of their studies.
In 2017 all offers made to domestic undergraduate students will be for Commonwealth Supported Places (CSP), which means that the Australian government makes a substantial contribution towards the cost of your education, and you pay the balance through student contributions.
The amount you pay depends on your area of study and the number of credit points (cp) in which you enrol. At UTS 48 credit points is considered to be one Equivalent Full Time Study Load (EFTSL).
The table to the right shows the amount a student can expect to pay for one year of full-time study (1.0 EFTSL).
Students can choose to pay their student contribution upfront, or if eligible, can defer their fees through HECS-HELP.
In addition to tuition fees, students are required to pay a Services and Amenities Fee (SSAF). The purchase of textbooks and other course materials may also result in additional cost.
You can calculate your student contribution as a percentage of the amounts shown on the table.
e.g. If you are enrolled in a 6 credit point Mathematics subject, your contribution would be 6/48 x $9,050 = $1,131.
