What the students say
Bachelor of Science in Information Technology
Bachelor of Arts in International Studies
International Intensive Elective: International Internship
Within the internship I gained important professional skills that will assist me throughout the remainder of my study and beyond.
Bachelor of Sound and Music Design
International Intensive Elective: In-country Contemporary Society Study
I’ve always wanted to go on exchange but a 6 or 12 month exchange just didn’t fit into my study plan easily. This program was therefore a great substitute because it fit neatly into the summer holidays.
The Beyond UTS International Leadership Development (BUILD) program is open to all UTS students. The program provides opportunities for you to develop leadership potential and take part in a range of local and international activities.
Sub-majors, electives and non-award study
No matter what you’re studying at UTS, you can add language and culture electives or sub-majors to your degree (Faculty approval required).
Create a sub-major with one of the following combinations:
- three contemporary society subjects from an International Studies sub-major (SMJ09034)
- a contemporary society subject and two relevant consecutive language and culture subjects known as Specialist Country Studies Sub-major (SMJ09036)
- three consecutive language and culture subjects known as Language Other Than English (LOTE) Studies Sub-major (SMJ09035)
Language and culture subjects and contemporary society subjects may also be taken as non-award studies.
