UTS Entry requirements
The entry criteria for UTS, Australia Admissions 2018 is based on set academic entry requirements. Every applicant is assessed individually, which means – different things in different people for different courses. Consequently, there's no ‘winning formula’ that will guarantee that an aspirant is offered a place. However, the admissions team looks for the students who they believe:
have the most academic ability and potential
will benefit from and flourish in the UTS learning environment
are best suited to the course they applied for
UTS Admission Selection process
The minimum requirements needed for an undergraduate degree at UTS is:
Successful completion of the All India Senior School Certificate Examination (CBSE) (10+2) with an overall grade in best four academic subjects where A1=5, A2=4.5, B1=3.5, B2=3.0, C1=2.0, C2:1.5, D1=1, D2=0.5, or
Successful completion of the Indian School Certificate Examination (10+2) awarded by the Indian Council of School Examinations (ICSE) with an overall percentage grade average in the best four externally examined subjects. Successful completion of the Higher Secondary School examinations from some state boards with a competitive pass may also be accepted. OR
Award of the full International Baccalaureate Diploma where the total aggregate score including bonus and penalty points meets entry standard. OR
Alternatively, if students don’t meet the above entry requirements – UTS also offer an alternative way to a degree – UTS Insearch. UTS Insearch is a popular choice for many international students as not only can students study the first year of their UTS degree here, they can do so in a supportive and much smaller learning environment – which is ideal for students new to the Australian education system.

UTS Insearch is another way into the UTS degree students intend to earn. The benefit is – it’s a smaller learning environment, students get lots more ongoing support such as 1-1 tutor sessions to study skills workshops. They offer diplomas (which in most cases is equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate UTS degree) which are designed to take the students straight into second year UTS. Some of UTS’s top alumni started their journey at UTS Insearch.
