Work around the globe
Your career prospects shouldn't end at your back fence. Neither should your outlook. At UTS, our Design, Architecture and Built Environment graduates go on to work in design, architecture, construction and property industries around the world. That’s because they get to learn about the people, projects and places that make the world’s great cities shine both in the classroom and on our unique global studio study trips.
In 2015, students from the UTS Architecture department took part in a tour across Japan to visit some of Japan's traditional and contemporary architecture. This video recounts one group's experience.

Grow your international network
As you develop your career, you'll gain a network of amazing international connections. But UTS can get you off to a head start. Our academics are global citizens with strong links to leading academic, institutional and industry bodies around the world: Interior & Spatial Design students might go on exchange to the University of Vienna. Or you might find yourself rubbing shoulders with some of Asia-Pacific’s biggest property industry players, thanks to our Built Environment academics. Our classes and studios have a truly international perspective and global pedigree.
Discover the world through Global Studios
Imagine going on the trip of a lifetime and getting credit for it...
We think that international experience is critical so we've created our Global Studio program. Global Studios are short, 2- to 3- week study trips, led by academics. Students get to visit iconic places, work on projects with local organisations, and meet outstanding professionals and practitioners. They're registered subjects so you get credit for your work and they count towards your degree.
Here are just some of the destinations our students have visited in recent years:
- Hong Kong
- West Timor
- Sri Lanka
- Annecy, France
- Venice, Italy
- Jakarta, Indonesia
- Banda Aceh, Indonesia
- Kefalonia, Greece
A number of these global studios receive funding from government sources and UTS’s BUILD program, meaning travel grants are available. For example, up to 20 students undertaking the 2015 Interdisciplinary Design Innovation Lab in Jakarta and Bandung, Indonesia were subsidised by a $40,000 New Colombo Plan grant.
In addition, Construction Project Management students taking the Construction for Developing Communities elective will have the opportunity to volunteer to work on building projects in disadvantaged communities in Australia and overseas.
