Getting into UTS

Galuwa Experience

Galuwa means ‘to climb’ in Gadigal language

And that’s exactly what we want Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander high school students to do at UTS.

Indigenous Literacy Day

The Galuwa Experience is a fantastic chance for young Indigenous high school students to discover the opportunities a degree in engineering, IT, health, science and visual communication and animation can provide.  

Galuwa Engineering and IT Experience 

The 5-day program attracts students who are interested in the fields of engineering or IT, as well as those who naturally have an aptitude for maths, creative thinking and problem solving and are unsure of which career path to follow. The free program features interactive hands-on workshops, site visits with industry partners, cultural activities, information about career paths and lunch. Participants also hear inspirational talks from Indigenous and non-Indigenous students, cadets and professionals.

  • Who is this for? Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in years 9–12.
  • When is it held? Monday – Friday during the July School Holidays. In 2017, the dates are 10th July – 14th July.
  • How much does it cost? FREE (Includes all meals, transport and accommodation).
  • Where is it being held? University of Technology Sydney city campus.
  • When should I register? Register before 4 June 2017. For more information call our Outreach Officers at Jumbunna (TOLL free) 1800 064 312.
