Course and subject information
Before you start your subject enrolment you should check the UTS Handbook for your course completion requirements. You should check the Handbook from the year in which you first enrolled at UTS.
As a UTS student, you are responsible for self-managing your continued enrolment in your course. Make sure that you regularly check that your personal and contact details are up to date on My Student Admin, and that your study plan is correct.
Every student has a study plan. Your study plan is a map of what you need to do to complete your course at UTS and is based on course academic requirements as outlined in the UTS Handbook.
Your study plan is displayed in My Student Admin and shows the subjects that you:
- have completed (passed, exempt and credited),
- are currently studying (enrolled), and
- still need to enrol in (planned).
It also shows the majors or sub-majors that you are hoping to complete.
The subjects on your study plan may be grouped in named sub-structures.
There are three types of sub-structures:
- choice blocks
- majors and sub majors
Compulsory subjects from any sub-structure will appear as core subjects. Subjects in option lists don't appear straight away; instead you will see an options row with a credit point value. This means that you may choose subjects up to the indicated credit point value according to the course rules as set out in the UTS Handbook.
Each sub-structure has a unique code which you can find in the UTS Handbook.
Choice blocks provide the option to choose one or more subjects or sub-structures from a list which may include an options list or electives.
Majors and sub majors are groups of subjects that once completed make you eligible to have that major or sub-major noted on your transcript.
Streams group together compulsory subjects and any associated option choices as a single entity eg. practicum subjects.
Subject activities are the classes or activities you need to do to complete a subject. A subject may consist of one or more activity groups (types) such as a:
- drop in
- lab session

In My Student Admin you can see a status against your course and subjects:

Admitted (course): Student has accepted offer and can enrol in subjects.

When you enrol in a subject, there are a number of supporting documents and materials which may assist you in the successful completion of your subject.
Once you are enrolled in a subject, from the commencement of Orientation and Session Start you can find your subject outline in Blackboard (UTSOnline) for most undergraduate coursework subjects or Canvas for most postgraduate. Your subject outline will provide you with detailed information about assessment tasks, textbooks, and other supporting materials that will support you in your subject.
You can find a general overview of your subject in the UTS Handbook.
