The UTS Vice-Chancellor’s Learning and Teaching Awards and Citations recognise the importance of learning and teaching for both undergraduate and postgraduate students within the framework of the UTS model of global practice-oriented education.

They’re aligned with the national teaching and learning awards and citations schemes. In fact, many successful UTS applicants have gone on to win national citations or teaching awards.
