I was a visiting fellow just very short time. It was great to make balance with my life and work. They prepared everything what I needed to do before I came to UTS. In addition, co-researchers were so nice.
Student Support Officer (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 9 March 2017
A typical day included working with clients on issues that may or may not affect their progression within their chosen areas of study. It also involved assidting them with any adminstration issues they may have. The workplace was very friendly, supportive and professional
very supportive and offered career advancement opportunities
Student Ambassador (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 7 March 2017
Engaging with colleagues and facilitating learning with students. I learned how to problem solve, become independent, take initiative and work as part of a team. The coordinator would send staff to different areas in accordance to availability of individuals and suitability. Work was very relaxed however there are times when individuals need to take charge and focus. I found this quite challenging as we had to cater to so many people however with the support other staff and my teammates everything was able to run smoothly. The most enjoyable part would have to be traveling around NSW to different areas getting to know the students and inspiring them and hopefully making a difference in their lives.
Research fellow (Former Employee) – Sydney – 5 March 2017
Discovery, problem-solving, critical thinking and creativity are features shared by great research and inspiring learning environments. At UTS, we integrate our approach to research and learning, so not only are our students engaged with the research our academics are undertaking, but also with inquiry-based approaches to research. As a result, our students graduate with knowledge of cutting edge practice informed by the future needs of our industry and community partners.
Student (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 1 March 2017
The best thing about UTS is that it provides a very hands-on approach to learning. Journalism was very much about being thrown into the deep end and learning the tricks of the trade from day 1 and encouraging and equipping students to find industry experience as soon as possible. I feel confident continuing my studies while entering the workforce in the media industry.
All the new buildings mean that there are comfortable new facilities within which to study. The staff are always excellent and helpful and there to help me learn.
Central location, close to train station, beautiful new buildings
Not as much 'campus culture', although I think the great facilities are changing this!
Administrative Officer (Former Employee) – Sydney NSW – 31 May 2016
Has a great work/family balance policy and this allows employees to juggle conflicting commitments whilst working. Staff development and flexible work practices are a great incentive to positive staff morale.
