Sydney: For Indian students, who are unable to procure direct admission to their preferred university and course, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), along with some other top universities in the southern hemisphere, have designed a pathway programmes to enable them to take up their preferred course. This would help the students to pursue the course without losing an 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. 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.
