UTS recognises the incredible potential of this and the next generation of Australian startup founders and business disruptors, so we’re fully committed to supporting our students to start their own entrepreneurial journey.
More than 40 per cent of our students have told us they want to create their own jobs or start their own companies, and we’ve listened. We've developed a range of co-curricular programs and real-world industry opportunities to equip students with the entrepreneurial tools that will be critical to their success.
Over the next five years, we plan to reach over 50% of our students with entrepreneurial experiences and support. This includes first touch activities and forums such as entrepreneurship bootcamps, hackathons, startup weekends, and other collaborative, ‘no experience required’ events, plus free introductory entrepreneurship education resources via UTS Open.
This also includes for-credit coursework options, plus our startup internships program, offering that real-world experience to bridge the gap between learning about entrepreneurship and doing it.
Students who are ready to create their own startup can then formally join the UTS Startups community. Student founders will be connected to a wealth of support within a dynamic, rapidly growing community, as well as have access to co-working space, regular check-ins with our mentoring team and a range of professional services.
Whether our students want to create a startup, work for one, or develop entrepreneurial muscle to add value within a future corporate industry career, our programs and opportunities will prepare them for the jobs of the future, now.
