The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) is a metropolitan university formed by the merging of several inner-city education institutions. UTS also has a campus in the northern Sydney district of Kuringgai.

It emphasises practice-orientated learning and applies this approach to fields such as business and engineering. If you’ve studied at UTS, you’re invited to rate the student experience and post a review.
