Clinical facilitators are nurses employed by UTS to ensure that UTS students get the most out of their experience on clinical placement. The facilitators are there to support students and guarantee that students can meet key competencies in clinical skills.
There is a facilitator for every 8 nursing undergraduate students, one of the best ratios of facilitation in any nursing course.

The Director of International Activities assists international students with:
- guidance and support on academic issues
- referral to UTS support systems
- personal and study issues
UTS Health provides support to ensure that students receive the resources and consideration they need to be successful in their studies. The University is committed to providing a supportive and flexible environment for all students by offering services through the Special Needs Service and Special Consideration.
- have a disability or ongoing illness
- have difficulties in studies because of family commitments (for example being a primary carer)
- were admitted to UTS via the inpUTS educational access scheme and are experiencing study difficulties.
Students can make an appointment to discuss their circumstances with a Disabilities Services Officer. The service is not just for existing students, staff in the Special Needs Service are happy to discuss the transition to university with students about to begin a course.
If additional assistance is needed when studying, consultation can be arranged with an Academic Liaison Officer (ALO).
ALOs are academic staff in each faculty who are responsible for negotiating reasonable adjustments to learning and assessment tasks with subject lecturers. The Faculty of Health ALO is Lisa Townsend.
Special Consideration is a separate service that aims to provide equitable treatment to students whose performance in course assessment is affected by special circumstances beyond their control and are of a temporary nature. This may include illness, misadventure or work-related circumstances.
