  • Hi I'm Luke and I'm Maddie and we're here to show you the cutting-edge facilities at UTS, available to you as a Communication or Education student. 

    Ranked as Australia's number one Young University, UTS is renowned for building professionals from day one with our 94.9% percent employment rate. The UTS City campus is located in the heart of Sydney's creative precinct and is just a short walk from central station, across from Central Park, a 5-minute walk to Chinatown and Spice Alley and a 15 minute walk to Darling Harbour. 

    I'm currently at the mezzanine lab where communication students have daily access to the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite as well as other industry standard software for film, audio and animation and because of that it gives students the freedom to work on their projects when it best suits them. This lab is also a great collaborative space for students to work together on their projects and pitch ideas with their peers, creating invaluable teamwork experience.

    If you're looking for a practical approach to hands-on learning then you'll find it here at UTS. This is the Bon marché studio where Media Arts and Production students in their final year have access to a huge green screen for their major projects, a lighting and sound desk and an HD projector for their film screenings. This theater also comes with a state-of-the-art surround sound system, allowing students to showcase their work in a cinema standard venue. 

    Our Music and Sound Design and Media Arts and Production students have access to current technologies combining both digital and analog equipment, preparing them for a wide range of creative industry practices. All control rooms are connected to the studio spaces that can accommodate ensembles of up to 40 performers. The studio also allows for ADR and Foley recording. Each control room is resourced with an SSL metrics console and top Genelec cloud speakers for monitoring. This is the equipment store which provides students with access to over 1500 pieces of equipment, giving them the opportunity to customize their practice for their future. The equipment ranges from microphones, recorders lighting, high quality DSLRs as well as industry standard cinema cameras such as the Blackmagic Ursa Pro. 

    At the Journalism lab journalism students can gain hands-on experience in a dynamic digital newsroom working on a new custom designed website, centralnews.com.au. The aim is to give students the competence and skills to be job ready as well as to create great stories to add to their portfolios. Our final stop in the communication facilities is here in the animation suites where final year Communication students can exercise their interest in digital media. Now that you've seen our state of the art communication facilities, Madeline is going to show you what is available to you as an education student. You can choose to study primary or secondary education at UTS.

    Our custom-built facilities are designed to help you learn how to best teach these students using the latest technology. You'll be assigned to one of over 400 schools in your first semester and complete at least 88 days of practice throughout your course. Our experimental learning studio is a flexible teaching space that allows students to learn and teach in an unconventional classroom. This equips students to teach in different and modern environments when they step out into the workforce. We are now in our science lab which simulates a range of equipment and material students in high schools use.

    In this lab you get to not only learn and practice the principles of teaching science to high school students but you'll also get to do some really cool experiments. If art is what you're into then you'll be using this studio a lot. This space facilitates for creative learning in different forms of visual arts so that you can take those skills to the classroom. In here students get to create paintings, ceramics, drawings and digital art in this fully equipped art studio. We're now in our music and performance studio where students studying a music or dance subject learn how to teach primary students. They also get to use the wide range of musical instruments seen here to extend their musical knowledge. 

    Well that's all for today, we hope you enjoyed this tour. 

    See you soon!
