The UTS Internationalisation Strategy 2010 - 2012 (see Downloads below) outlines the University's internationalisation objectives, and practical initiatives to meet those objectives. It ensures inter-cultural and global perspectives are integrated into all aspects of university life, so that staff and students are well-equipped to operate in an international environment.
The Internationalisation strategy was developed by, and is being implemented under the direction of, Professor William Purcell, Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President (International and Development). The strategy identifies the following "internationalisation focus areas" for UTS over the next three years.
- Develop high quality strategic international research linkages through the Key Technology Partnership Program
- Enhance student mobility through an international leadership program, and develop new opportunities for high quality, short term study options as well as international volunteering and internships
- Continue to internationalise the curriculum by developing new inclusive teaching pedagogies, and by establishing key graduate attributes that reflect the global skills our students will need in the future
- Enhance the classroom, campus and community experience of our international students through multi-layered learning support
- Contribute to development projects in the University’s key strength areas in partnership with local institutions to fulfil the University’s global civic responsibility
- Foster our international alumni to develop a strong network of UTS graduates around the world contributing to and benefitting from their close connection with the university.
