You'll enroll in 3-4 UTS elective courses. UTS utilizes credit points and represent a measure of the student’s workload by subject. Most subjects at UTS are 6 credit points each, which equals 4 credits in the U.S. semester system. You may earn 12-16 credits.
Due to differences in the Australian higher education system, there is no standard for the number of days a week a course may meet. Class meeting times vary across departments and subject areas.
The academic structure below lists a small sample of the hundreds of courses available. You will have access to introductory, intermediate and advanced courses in a wide range of courses in the fields of engineering, information technology, creative intelligence and innovation, the sciences, and much more. See below for information how to access the University of Technology Sydney website for a full list of courses.
Prior to departure, you will select your preferred courses. You will be enrolled into courses based on their availability. It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
A transcript from UTS is awarded upon successful completion of the program.
The host institution has offered the following courses in the past. Please note that course listings may not be finalized until the start of the term; we’ll post an updated list when the host institution finalizes its offerings.

Couple of notes to keep in mind:
- In Australia, the fall (autumn) semester occurs in the first half of the year (February to June). Spring semester occurs in the second half of the year (July to November).
- Some courses may have pre-requisites requiring students to have already completed specific courses or equivalents at a lower level. As a study abroad student, you are not expected to have taken the specific pre-requisite requirement, but you must have studied a relevant or similar course/module in your home country/institution. You should take previous academic experience into account when making course choices.
- Some courses may have co-requisites, which means that the course and the co-requisite must be taken at the same time. If no pre-requisites or co-requisites are specified, then courses should be open to all students.
- At UTS, courses are validated at a level corresponding to a particular year of study. The levels are as follows:
- L1 (Level 1), which is equivalent to the 1st year of an undergraduate degree (similar to 100 level, introductory level)
- L2 (Level 2) which is equivalent to the 2nd year of an undergraduate degree (similar to 200 level, prior knowledge is required)
- L3 (Level 3) which is equivalent to the 3rd year of an undergraduate degree (similar to 300 level, advanced level)
- L4 (Level 4) which is equivalent to the 4th year of an undergraduate degree (similar to 400 level, advanced level)
Get out and explore! Excursions are offered for most semester, year, and summer programs*. Semester students are typically offered between two to three excursions and summer study students are typically offered between one to two excursions. You'll receive a calendar of excursions during orientation; here are a few day and overnight excursions we've offered in the past.
Visit the dazzling Blue Mountains and Featherdale National Park where you can get up close and personal with kangaroos and koalas.
This excursion includes an overnight stay with dinner inside the Taronga Zoo.
