- Win a PAID 2 week internship!
Are you keen to study over summer, but aren’t sure what to expect? Have you studied in summer session previously and wish there were more things on offer and a bigger buzz around campus? If this is resonating with you, we want to hear from you!
This September, UTS is running a ‘Design Summer at UTS’ hackathon to address the wicked problem of how to create an awesome experience for students studying over summer. Using an interactive, design-thinking approach, we’ll be taking feedback students have previously given and co-creating solutions to improve the overall UTS summer experience. Ideas will be pitched at the end of the session; students who have the most popular idea will win a PAID two week internship at UTS to help bring their idea to life!
Registrations are open to the first 300 students, so book in today.
This event will give students the opportunity to connect with the following mentors from UTS Startups:
