For Indian students, who are unable to procure direct admission to their preferred university and course, University of Technology Sydney, along with some other top universities in the southern hemisphere, have designed a pathway programmes to enable them to take up their preferred course, without losing an academic year. “We are offering special scholarships for Indian students called ‘Aspire’. Students attending this pathway diploma programme can get admission straight into the second year of bachelors after successful completion of the diploma,” said Dr Matthew Holt, Transnational Academic Executive, UTS.
Explaining the programme, he said, the system has been devised to help Indian students, who are not able to secure the requisite cut-off mark for their preferred universities. “It is important to offer special support to international students in their first year after school. Besides giving extra attention to cultural requirements and internationalising the curriculum, smaller classrooms, with the same collaborative environment as that of a full-fledged university campus have been our focus areas,” said the visiting executive.
He also said that the UTS doesn’t believe in confining students to class rooms, but let students learn in the field, to be better able to put in practice their learning. Courtesy constant guidance, Australian universities such as the New South Wales, Deakin, Canberra, Queensland, and UTS, recorded a substantial increase in the number of Indian students in 2017.

UTS specifically revived Greek philosopher Aristotle’s centuries-old style of learning by looking at education through reason and habit. “This means we impart learning by actually letting students practice it, unlike conventional teaching, which involves class rooms; we are laying emphasis on learning on the field,” said Holt.
