Getting into UTS

Thinking about uni

There are lots of reasons to study at university. A university degree challenges you to learn, helps you build great professional networks, and gives you the chance to make lifelong friends.

Having a degree will also enhance your employment and salary prospects:

·       Nearly 70% of bachelor degree graduates find work within 4 months of graduating*.

·       The average starting salary for bachelor degree graduates is $54,000*.

Graduates of a technology uni like UTS gain also a lifetime income advantage**.
