Our next intake is semester 2 which commences on 15 June 2021. Orientation is held during 15-18 June and classes begin on 21 June

Domestic students are not assessed on ATAR. Entry is based on your HSC subject average which must include English and your top three non-VET subjects.

Below are the minimum HSC subject averages needed for our diplomas:

  • 75% for the Accelerated (eight month) diploma
  • 67% for the Standard (12 month) diploma

UTS College diplomas are offered over eight months (accelerated) or 12 months (standard).

The diploma program you undertake will be based on your HSC subject average and the pace of learning you wish to undertake. For example, the eight-month accelerated program has a slightly higher study load and therefore requires a higher HSC subject average for entry. 

You’ll enjoy the best of both worlds with a mix of online and face-to-face learning at UTS College.

We will gradually bring more face-to-face learning activities back on campus in 2021. Some essential practical-based learning activities such as lab, research and studio work will be delivered on campus from semester 1 of 2021.

Lectures will continue to be delivered through ‘Live Online’.

Experience a new kind of student-centred learning when you join our community of learners and teachers. In the live classes, you’ll interact in real time with your teachers and fellow students.

Outside class time, you can work both collaboratively and independently, with virtual access to teachers and learning support always at hand. You’ll develop future-ready skills for a changing world of study and work, with plenty of opportunities to engage in lively online social activities.

We offer premium higher education diplomas and as a private institution we don’t receive government funding.  We also limit are classes to less than 20 students, so students benefit from our personalised approach to learning.  The investment is $33,000 for an accelerated (8 month diploma) or standard (12 month) diploma.

Eligible Australian students can apply for FEE-HELP, which means you can study now and pay later. 

FEE-HELP is an Australian Government loan scheme designed to assist eligible students in paying part or all their tuition fees. Australian citizens, holders of humanitarian permanent resident visas and some New Zealand citizens are eligible for FEE-HELP assistance.

During the application process you will be asked to submit a ‘Request for FEE-HELP’ form which will be assessed by our team. Instructions on how to complete the form will be provided to you in your offer letter. 

If you’d like further information on FEE-HELP you can download the study assist FEE-HELP booklet.

When you complete your diploma, you will receive a Grade Point Average (GPA). Students who meet the minimum GPA for their desired course at UTS will receive a guaranteed place. And, depending on the course chosen, you may also be able to fast-track to second year at UTS. GPA requirements for each UTS degree can be found in our student guide.

Australian students can apply online, or if you’d like any help with your application you can call the UTS College team on free call 1800 896 994.
