This exchange is located in Sydney, Australia and is open to Walton College of Business and College of Engineering students. The University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) is a great place to broaden your horizons, develop your international networks and study in Sydney - one of the most multicultural cities in the world.
You will be largely independent during your exchange, but an important part of student life in Sydney is meeting new people and relaxing with friends. Throughout the year, there are events where you can socialize and network, both on and off campus. These include orientation events, barbecues, band performances, a sport and recreation program, outdoor cinema, trivia competitions, Fair Day and Amazing Race. UTS’s annual Infusion festival celebrates the cultural diversity of the UTS community through a program of live music, dance and other performances, as well as food, competitions and an international markets day.
Sydney combines the downtown feel of a busy metropolis with a relaxed lifestyle. With its famous harbour, sandy beaches, national parks, and suburbs with their own unique identity, the city is in easy reach of places to explore.
Rated the fourth most liveable city for students in the world (QS Best Student Cities 2015), Sydney attracts over 35,000 international students to live and study in this culturally diverse city.
UTS’s central location means students can easily access Sydney attractions, entertainment and essential services from our campus doorstep.
