What is UTS BUILD?

Living in a globally connected world requires a global mindset and an awareness of your identity as a global citizen. The UTS BUILD Global Leadership Program is designed to harness the leadership potential of UTS students and develop essential skills and competencies as a global leader equipped to create a better world.

UTS BUILD stands for Beyond UTS International Leadership Development. The Program brings students beyond the academic curriculum of their course – giving them access to a world of opportunities.

Students collect 100 BUILD points to complete the program and their participation is recognised on their Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS) when they graduate from UTS.


UTS BUILD hosts a variety of events on campus that build the global leadership capacity of students and provide them with opportunities to network and connect via inspirational keynote speaker events to skills workshops and off-site fieldtrip experiences. 


UTS BUILD strongly encourages all students to take their global leadership journey from the shores of Australia to an overseas immersion experience  on either a short-term overseas program or a semester or year long Global Exchage experience.

Short-term experiences may include:

  • Academic study programs at host universities
  • International Internships
  • Experiential learning programs

These experience earn points towards the BUILD Global Leadership Program and some of the programs attract academic credit towards your course.  Scholarships and Loans are also available to eligible students to supplement costs of travels overseas.
