The UTS difference

UTS has an international reputation for its innovative and practice-based nursing courses.

Dynamic and highly qualified teaching staff collaborate with skilled clinicians and a wide range of expert guest academics to bring the courses to life. Professorial staff also actively teach in the program, ensuring the curriculum incorporates the latest research.

Students have access to state of the art facilities and clinical practice laboratories and simulation is integrated throughout the Bachelor of Nursing. The teaching spaces are flexible and collaborative and UTS provides specific places to relax or study. Beyond the university, the faculty is affiliated with over 100 clinical facilities in Sydney and NSW where our students complete clinical placement.

Postgraduate students develop high level skills in speciality areas and leadership through a mix of online learning and on campus study days. The postgraduate experience provides a professional environment in which to excel, encouraging debate and networking with peers and industry leaders.
