About the Scholarship Sponsor:
The University of Technology in Sydney (UTS) can trace its roots back to 1964, when the New South Wales Institute of Technology was established. The institute finalized the purchase of the Sydney College of the Arts’ School of Design on January 25th, 1988. Before the University of Technology, Sydney Act was passed on January 26, 1988, UTS was known as the University of Technology, Sydney. Starting on January 1, 1990, UTS merged with the Kuring-Gai College of Advanced Education and the Institute of Technical and Adult Teacher Education to form the modern University of Technology and Sydney. The publicly supported research university is currently affiliated with three international organizations: the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), the Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning (ASAIHL), and the Australian Technology Network (ATN) (ATN).
Campus of the University of Technology, Sydney is located just south of Sydney’s CBD. There are three distinct areas on campus that house the main administrative and academic facilities. The Broadway district is home to a wide range of academic institutions, including those devoted to medicine and research, the humanities and social sciences, the built environment (including engineering and IT), and the creative industries. The Haymarket region in Sydney’s Old Market area is home to both the UTS Library and the Faculty of Law. In addition, UTS Startups, the UTS Animal Logic Academy, and the Dr. Chau Chak Wing Building are all housed in the same structure. The Blackfriars Children’s Centre is just one of several administrative buildings that make up the Blackfriars complex. Some of the many UTS locations in Sydney include Moore Park, the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick, and Botany.
UTS offers more than 210 graduate programs and 130 undergraduate programs. Architecture, business, the built environment, communication, education, design, engineering, international studies, information technology, law, nursing, midwifery, pharmacy, and science are only a few of the many disciplines represented in these courses of study. In total, there are 46,190 students registered, with over 13,000 coming from other countries. The university also has an impressive staff of around 4,714 people. It has 256 partnerships for student exchange, giving students access to excellent exchange programs at 185 universities in 43 countries. Roughly 240,000 people around the world have graduated from the institution.
UTS has a rich history of generating notable alumni who have gone on to make their mark in a wide variety of professions, including but not limited to engineering, business, architecture, academia, journalism, the arts, and politics. Hugh Jackman is an accomplished actor who has garnered a number of honors, including an Emmy, for his portrayal of Wolverine in the X-Men film series. Australia’s former Deputy Opposition Leader, Tanya Plibersek, is a well-known politician. Morris Iemma was the state of New South Wales’ 40th premier. Australia’s own Anh Do is a well-known comedian and actress. His breakout appearances in Good News Week and Thank God You’re Here propelled him to stardom. Charlotte Best is a model and actress who shot to fame after starring in the hit Australian soap opera “Home and Away.” Sonia Kruger is a well-known TV host who currently works as a co-host for “Dancing with the Stars” in Australia.
