Welcome to UTS!
We’ve designed a valuable Orientation program to help you get the best start to your student experience at UTS. Throughout the period of 20 February – 10th March 2017, there’ll be the opportunity to attend a variety of sessions to help you prepare for your time at university.
You may notice students dressed in orange around campus. These students are known as Peer Networkers and will be roaming around UTS throughout Orientation to help you get acquainted with your new campus. The Peer Network is made up of current international and local UTS students, so if you have any questions during Orientation don’t be shy, they’re a friendly bunch and are here to help you! If you’d like to read up on all things Orientation, take a look at our online Orientation Booklet.
UTS + YOU contains sessions that have been identified as relating to your particular faculty and/or course, along with an official welcome from the university.
From learning how to master LinkedIn to getting tips on how to find part-time work while you’re studying, these sessions and activities can help you kick start your career journey.
UTS offers a variety of services to support students transitioning to university learning styles. These sessions will provide tips and tricks to help you to succeed while you’re studying at UTS.
HELPS (Higher Education Language & Presentation Support) is dedicated to providing English language and academic literacy support to all UTS students. These workshops will help you best prepare and optimise your understanding of lectures and tutorials.
How do I get to the library? Where can I buy my textbooks? Where’s building 15? What’s so special about all the new buildings at UTS? And where are all the books kept?! Attend one of the tours on offer to find out.
The UTS Library will soon become one of your most frequently visited places in Sydney. Sign up to a library tour and quick start workshop to learn the ins and outs of your new study home.
Sort out all the life-admin things you may not want to have to think about, but have to- accommodation, finances and how to manage the juggling act of study/work/life balance.
University is about much more than attending classes. Having a well-rounded university experience also means getting involved in different activities on campus, joining sporting and social clubs, making new friends along the way and having fun!
Come along to this tailored session for PG and Mature-Age students on how to advance your career and juggle work and life commitments.
The inpUTS Welcome is by invitation to students who have applied for admission though the educational access schemes (EAS) inpUTS or Schools Recommendation Scheme (SRS). UTS uses the umbrella term EAS to cover schemes that ensure people from the widest range of backgrounds have the opportunity to access UTS courses.
This employer panel will include CommBank, KPMG and Edelman and possibly other employers who will be confirmed closer to the date of the event.
