Application assessment process and timeline

UTS application assessment process

  • Submit application to Student Centre/faculty
  • Collect from student centre/faculty and submit to UTS International
  • You will receive a notification email after the closing date - see closing dates below
  • All applications are ranked by GPA/WAM and you are allocated a place at one of our partner universities
  • You will receive an email from UTS International advising if you have been successful and to inform you of the partner university allocation
  • Once you receive the offer, you will need to accept or decline the offer by the date specified in the email. Failure to do so may result in the offer by UTS to recommend your application to a partner institution being withdrawn.

Note: If two applications for the same university have and equal GPA, your personal statement will be assessed to help determine your suitability to the destination.

The Exchange Officer will also ask you to fill in the host university application forms. It is important for you to be aware that although most students' applications are accepted by the host institution, the host university has the final say in accepting your application.

The following circumstances may be considered when accepting a late application:

  2. The application is received by the UTS Exchange team prior to the allocation of UTS students to partner universities.
  3. The application is received by the UTS Exchange team prior to the selected host institution's exchange application deadline.
  4. The student is applying to study at a host institution where places are available.
  5. The student will be notified of the outcome of the late application submission, two weeks after submission
