Outreach and community
UTS Science values its relationships with schools, associations and the broader community.
At UTS Science, we're proud of the many amazing research and teaching our scientists and mathematicians are doing, and we’re excited to share these developments with you.
UTS is undertaking a number of social distancing initiatives (PDF, 185kb), informed by NSW Health advice, to support the government’s efforts to slow the spread of COVID-19.
As part of this response UTS is pausing all outreach activity and on campus events in the coming weeks. The wellbeing of our school partners, students and extended community is our top priority.
We are reviewing our outreach offerings to be able to provide you with other avenues through which to access UTS. We'll update the page soon with more information.
Learn more about UTS’ response on the Coronavirus advice and FAQ page.
We engage with schools and the community through our innovative outreach programs for the benefit of future students and the community. We offer many opportunities for science, mathematics and technology engagements through careers forums, public lectures, campus visits to UTS, hands-on workshops for high school students, work experience and activities for schools, teachers and the community.
We are pleased to offer you some online alternatives from our Outreach Program.

U@Uni outreach program
The Faculty of Science participates in the U@Uni outreach program , working with partner schools primarily in South West Sydney. As a key component of the UTS Widening Participation Strategy (WPS), this program values and seeks to increase the diversity in tertiary education by inspiring and enabling high school students from low socio-economic and/or Indigenous backgrounds to attend university.
Students participate in on-campus and school-based experiences that demystify university, increase their skills for the HSC and further education, and build their understanding of post high-school options.
