About the prizes

The Graduation and Prize Giving ceremony is an opportunity for you to celebrate the completion of your studies at UTS Insearch with fellow students, family and friends. It is a formal event held for students who have completed their studies in the diploma program and UTS Foundation Studies.

The ceremony also includes the presentation of prizes including the Dean’s Merit Prize and the Outstanding Graduate Prize for that semester.
 

UTS Insearch Dean’s Merit Prizes

Each semester, a prize of $5,000 AUD will be awarded to the full time student who achieves the highest Grade Point Average (GPA) in their first semester in each of the diploma programs and the UTS Foundation Studies program. If more than one student achieves the highest GPA, the prize is shared.
 

UTS Insearch Outstanding Graduate Prizes

Each semester, a $5,000 AUD prize will be awarded to the full-time student who achieves the highest Grade Point Average (GPA) overall in their studies in each of the diploma programs and the UTS Foundation Studies program. If more than one student achieves the highest GPA, the prize is shared.

Eligibility

You don’t need to apply for these prizes. UTS Insearch will review student results at the end of each semester and notify the recipients of these prizes ahead of the Graduation Ceremony. You are eligible to receive one of these prizes if you achieved the highest GPA in your diploma or UTS Foundation Studies program – either in in your first semester or overall in your studies. If more than one person achieves the highest GPA, in your program, the prize is shared between you.

How to apply and deadlines

Recipients of these prizes are notified by the Dean of Studies.
