Welcome to Live Online at UTS College

Whether you’re looking for a guaranteed*place in a UTS bachelor degree, or need to improve your English for university, there’s no need to put your future on hold. With Live Online, you can be on your way right now. Learn from home with the structure and support of our teachers and staff every step of the way.

Our Live Online courses offer the same special combination of ongoing academic support, small class sizes, and practical learning that UTS College is known for.

This high-quality learning experience is made possible by our highly qualified teachers, working with world-leading technology, and our caring specialist staff in student support services.

Your path to UTS

When you successfully complete a UTS College diploma, you’ll receive guaranteed entry* to the corresponding UTS undergraduate degree. In fact, most of our diplomas will fast-track you into second year* of your UTS degree. And as a Live Online student, you can be on that rapid pathway much sooner. Choose from diplomas in Business, Communication, Design & Architecture, Engineering, Information Technology, or Science.

The same personalised support

We want you to thrive while you’re studying with us. That’s why we’ve designed a robust framework of support services tailored specifically to meet your needs for Live Online. Our Live Online students experience the same high level of support enjoyed by all UTS College students. Our small class sizes – no more than 20 students in one tutorial – allow for a personalised learning experience. Live Online students also benefit from one-on-one tutorials, study-skills workshops, and dedicated Study Success Advisers to keep you on your path. We have processes and technology in place to identify when students may need extra help so we can ensure they receive support to stay on track. We are always here to help you succeed in your Live Online.

Future-focused learning

Our teaching model goes beyond course subjects to focus on life-long learning skills. This means small tutorial classes, formative assignments, personalised attention, and an emphasis on collaboration. We’re preparing you to evolve and adapt to challenges and opportunities not just for today, but into the future.

Flexible and diverse course options

Our Live Online programs are flexible, so you can complete your studies in the way that works best for you. Our diploma courses can be studied over eight, 12, or 16 months, and our English courses are offered over 10 intakes throughout the year.

You’ll find courses to suit all levels and needs. From Academic English programs and UTS Foundation Studies, to diplomas in Business, Communication, Design & Architecture, Engineering, Information Technology, and Science. 

And, once travel restrictions end, you’ll be able to continue your studies at our campus Sydney, or with our education partners around the world.

International campuses

You can also access our high-quality Live Online programs through our partnerships in six countries  outside Australia, or at our Sri Lanka campus. Visit the International page to find out more about studying our English Language and Diploma programs in your home country.
