Frequently asked questions

When you need to re-enrol depends on which type of program you are studying.
  • Diploma students - Re-enrolment days vary each semester. Usually, you will be able to re-enrol during Orientation and Academic Preparation Week and up until Friday of Orientation and Academic Preparation Week..
  • UTS Foundation Studies students - UTS Insearch will handle your re-enrolment, and you will be sent a new timetable during Orientation and Academic Preparation Week.
  • New students and students studying English - You do not need to re-enrol. For more information about how your enrolment is managed, visit the English language program enrolment page or the Academic program enrolment page.

Make sure you read through re-enrolment information carefully and note important dates, as late enrolments will attract a fee. Please also note that your fees for the next semester must be paid before you can re-enrol.

You can check your class timetable on eStudent

If you are a UTS Foundation Studies or English language program student, your timetable will be produced by UTS Insearch and you will be sent a link to it via your UTS email.

If you are studying a diploma, you will create your timetable when you enrol.

In some circumstances, UTS Insearch may need to change your timetable, especially during the first three weeks of the semester. We recommend that you check your UTS email account regularly for any important updates.

Find out more about classes and timetables.

You can log in to eStudent using your student ID and password.

You will find a link to eStudent under the ‘Staff and students’ menu on the footer of all UTS Insearch webpages.

Or, visit (bookmark the page in your web browser for quick access later on).

You can only change your subjects if you are a UTS Foundation Studies student and you have ‘elective’ subjects as part of your program. You can change these in eStudent up until enrolment is closed, as long as there are still places available (for enrolment dates, visit Important dates).

All other students need to progress through the subjects listed in their program. This helps to ensure that you gain essential knowledge and skills before moving onto the next set of subjects.

If you want to change into a completely different program, it is best to discuss your options and next steps with a Study Success Adviser. You will need to submit an application to the Student Centre before Wednesday of the first study week. 

There are two weeks of holiday leave scheduled after each exam period and over the Christmas and New Year’s break in December. And while it’s not possible to take holiday leave during the semester, you may like to take a short break on public holidays (long weekends), when no classes are taught.

UTS Foundation Studies and diploma students will also have a two-week break between semesters. 

If you are an English language program student moving into UTS Foundation Studies or a diploma at UTS Insearch, you may not have a standard holiday break between your English program and academic program, so make sure you are aware of processes and key dates during this time.

If you need to arrange leave during the study period, this can have a serious impact your studies, and your student visa (if you are an international student). To learn about conditions and processes relating to leave, visit Deferring, withdrawing and taking leave.
