What is the UTS BUILD Program?

UTS BUILD is the short name for the University of Technology Sydney’s global leadership program: Beyond UTS International Leadership Development.

The program is an opportunity for every UTS student to make the most of their time at UTS, develop their leadership potential and take part in a range of local and international activities.

Being part of UTS BUILD gives students the  ability to go beyond the academic curriculum of their degree – giving them access to a world of opportunities.

Students collect 100 BUILD points to complete the program and their participation is recognised on their Australian Higher Education Graduation Certificate when they graduate from UTS.

Every year UTS BUILD gives students the opportunity to travel overseas for:

  • Study tours
  • International Internships
  • Experiential learning programs

BUILD Abroad short-term oversease experiences give students a new perspective on their studies by putting them into a global context.

Some of the programs can attract academic credit back in Australia.  Some of our students receive grant funding to help cover the costs of their travels overseas.
