UTS is a dynamic and cosmopolitan university that marks the gateway to Sydney - Australia's economic, multicultural and creative global city. In 2008 we celebrated twenty years as a university, and we have great plans for our third decade.
UTS has a singular vision - to be a world-leading university of technology. To achieve this, our leadership in learning and teaching must be coupled with international renown in research, and a world-class infrastructure that supports our vibrant intellectual environment. The achievement of our vision relies on attracting high quality students, academics, researchers and administrators; people who are passionate about knowledge, learning, discovery and creativity.
We will continue to build on our enviable reputation for a fusion of innovation, creativity and technology; precisely the characteristics that make us and our graduates sought after by global industry. Recent market research confirms that NSW leaders in business, the professions and government believe we have the most industry-focused approach of all Sydney metropolitan universities.
UTS excels in many academic and professional areas. We have a friendly, collaborative and equitable culture, and a strong commitment to our local and global communities.
UTS's commitment to helping greater numbers of rural youth achieve their tertiary goals is demonstrated by their Education Partnership with CEFA.
To support those rural students who receive grants from their local education foundations, UTS provides additional financial assistance.
Eligiblity for co-funding from UTS is based on the following criteria:
UTS students are able to access a variety of scholarships and grants. These are not limited to CEFA students - all students are welcome to apply according to the selection criteria.
