Overall Experience
It was worth every penny and every second. I grew so much in my independence and understanding of the world at large. I had so many experiences that I wouldn't be able to have at home. I met so many people from around the world. I am a better person because of my time abroad. - Rochester Institute of Technology View Entire Review

About

A vibrant leader in research and innovation, University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is ranked the #1 young university in Australia, with origins that date back to the nineteenth century. 

Located on a purpose-built campus in downtown Sydney, UTS’ population of 46,000 diverse and international students (from 120 countries) study in nine faculties and enjoy state-of-the art facilities, thoughtful group work areas, and study/lounge areas all around campus that look like mini living rooms. 

A commitment to fostering the use of cutting-edge technology, a practice-based approach, and an institutional value around hands-on experience, along with considerable links to industry, make this university a perfect choice for future journalists, designers, and entrepreneurs. The campus also features proximity to Sydney’s media district and an AACSB-accredited Business School. This program is a real resume-booster, offering practical, real-world experiences. 

Academics are characterized by a multidisciplinary approach, particularly in the Social Sciences, and many lecturers are leaders in their areas of expertise who are also engaged in professional practice.

Special Academic Opportunity: You can undertake an Arcadia Internship in Sydney alongside your courseload at UTS. Placement options include: Advertising; architecture & landscape architecture; arts; business operations (including HR); entrepreneurial start-ups; environment & sustainability; film & TV; financial services; health; hospitality; journalism; law; marketing; non-governmental organizations; politics; psychology; public relations; sport; and theatre.

Campus life offers state-of-the-art sports facilities, and buildings are intermingled with the urban landscape.  You’re right in the center of everything, with the city there to explore, and only minutes away from the Central Railway Station and Darling Harbour.
