If you would like to study for a semester at an institution that is not a UTS Global Exchange partner, you may be able to do so, provided the institution has a Study Abroad or Visiting Student Program. Study Abroad attracts a tuition fee in most cases, based on the number of subject credit points you study at the other institution.
Global Short Programs
Global Short Programs offers UTS students opportunities to participate in international short-term programs, delivered overseas or virtually, during UTS session breaks. These programs allow students to experience other cultures whilst cultivating new perspectives and learning a broad range of skills that will help them thrive in the future.
Global Short Programs opportunities include summer or winter schools at partner universities, experiential learning programs, and international internships. All Global Short Programs are approved by Faculties and eligible students can receive academic credit and financial assistance.
