Tips for selecting subjects
- How can I find subjects at UTS?
The Step-by-Step Guide to Finding Subjects as a Study Abroad and Exchange Student (PDF, 3MB) shows you how to use the UTS Handbook which provides comprehensive information on UTS subjects. You can use these detailed to get study approvals from your home university. The Step-by-Step Guide to Finding Subjects as a Study Abroad and Exchange Student (PDF, 3MB) also shows you how to use the UTS Timetable Planner.
- Is the subject undergraduate or postgraduate?
Undergraduate subjects (Bachelor's degree level) and postgraduate subjects (Master's degree level) are available to Study Abroad and Exchange students. If you have not completed the equivalent of an Australian Bachelor's degree (e.g. 180 ECTS), you will not be able to undertake postgraduate subjects.
- What if the subjects have prerequisites?
If a subject has prerequisites, you must demonstrate that you have the required knowledge to take the subject based on previous studies. You will need to supply detailed subject outlines (in English) of the subjects you have already completed at your home institution.
- Will the subject be credited to my degree?
When selecting subjects, it is important to keep in mind how you will use them for credit at your home institution. Always check with your home institution's Study Abroad or Exchange academic adviser regarding the suitability of your subject selections.
- Is the subject offered during the right teaching session for me?
You can check when subjects are available by referring to the UTS timetable. Some subjects are offered only in Autumn session or Spring session, but not in both. Details of subjects are available in the UTS Handbook. The Step-by-Step Guide to Finding Subjects as a Study Abroad and Exchange Student (PDF, 3MB) shows you how to use the UTS Timetable Planner.
