Concurrent study, also known as outbound cross-institutional study, provides current UTS students with the opportunity to undertake a limited number of subjects at another institution for credit towards their UTS course.
The following general principles apply when assessing an application for concurrent studies:
- Subjects must be substantially different from subjects offered at UTS.
- Subjects must relate to the major field of study being undertaken at UTS.
- Only elective subjects will normally be credited.
- A maximum of 24 credit points of subjects (total throughout course) may be undertaken as concurrent studies.
- Concurrent study is generally not approved in courses of less than or equal to 96 credit points, or when students have been granted recognition of prior learning so that the total requirement for completion of the UTS course is less than or equal to 96 credit points.
- Concurrent study is generally not approved unless the student has completed satisfactorily the requirements of at least one subject of the UTS course.
- Timetabling/scheduling or reducing time to complete a program will not normally be taken into consideration when assessing applications.
- Subjects must be undertaken at an Australian tertiary education institution.
