Notes on course search


Terms:

Full study program (Bachelor / Master) = Degree
This is what you look for if you want to study a full bachelor's or master's program.

Individual course (weekly event) = subject
This is what you look for if you want to study at this university for one or two semesters as part of a Study Abroad program.

Grade points / evaluation points (in Europe also ECTS) = credit points
This term describes the evaluation points that are awarded per course. The value is different at every college in Australia. You can find a detailed explanation of the credit points below.

Credit points:

At the University of Technology Sydney, the value of courses is given in credit points. These have nothing to do with the ECTS points, as this system is only used in Europe. You can find a recommendation for converting Australian points into the European ECTS system in our FAQs.

A full semester at the University of Technology Sydney has a total of 24 credit points (usually corresponds to 30 ECTS).

Individual courses usually have a value of 6 or 8 credit points (6 CP or 8 CP).

Please pay attention to the credit points of the individual courses so that you do not exceed the total number of credit points that you can take per semester. How many credit points you earn as a Study Abroad student per semester determines how high the tuition fees for your Study Abroad semester will be. You can find the fees on the right-hand side in this short profile.

When applying, six to eight courses must be specified for examination at the university. After receiving the offer of study and the course admission, you then choose the courses in which you are enrolling. You will get more information about this in due course.

Course number and course level:

The course number at the University of Technology Sydney looks something like this: 11235

The first number usually represents the specialist area (e.g. 1 = architecture, 2 = business, 4 = engineering, etc.)

Based on the course number, it is not easy to tell which level the individual courses have. Whether a course is offered at Bachelor level (Undergraduate) or Master level (Postgraduate) can be found in the description of the course.

Campus & living

Here you will find an overview of the most important buildings on the UTS campus and their insider nicknames.

In Australia there is the possibility of living in university dormitories, in dormitories from external providers as well as in private shared accommodation or apartments.

Especially for the UTS, we recommend booking a place in the university dormitory. The on-campus residences are of good quality and in an excellent location. In addition, they are only marginally more expensive than private accommodation.
