  • Student Profiles

    On average, 50 per cent of commencing undergraduate students at UTS are non-current school leavers, meaning they haven't come down the traditional path of attending university directly after high school. There is no ‘one’ way it has to be done.

  • Pathways to UTS - video transcript

    Kristen Wren
    Bachelor of Business
    Diploma of Hospitality Management
    Speaker 1: Uni and UTS was a big scary thing for me when I was in high school. I never thought that I would get into uni and I didn’t think that I was capable of being a uni student.

    Mohamed Sesay:
    UTS Bachelor of Engineering Diploma in Engineering Practice
    TAFE Diploma of Engineering - Technical
    Speaker 2: During my application I understood that UTS provide inpUTS access scheme, through UAC. Looking at inpUTS, it’s more focused on students like me who have disadvantage, coming from a non-English speaking background.

    Speaker 1: I was able to secure credit recognition with UTS, which is equivalent to four fulltime subjects. One whole semester of work.

    Thomas Do
    Bachelor of Business
    Diploma of Hospitality Management
    Speaker 3: So combining TAFE and university studies was financially beneficial for me because I was able to get credit recognition coming to university. As well I have the added benefit on graduating with dual qualifications, so I have my diploma from TAFE as well as my degree.

    Sumnima Dewan
    Bachelor of Arts in Communication (Journalism)
    Diploma of Community Welfare
    Speaker 3: For me, having two years’ experience at TAFE, I knew what to expect and that made me more confident.

    Speaker 2: I’m really in the right place where I can fulfil and pursue my dream as a student.

    Speaker 1:  So now that I am a uni student and I am one of those people in the UTS Tower building that everyone can see from Central, I feel really proud of myself that I’m somebody that could do it.
