Our Vision, Purpose
and Ethics

UTS:INSEARCH is your pathway to UTS and beyond. Find out about our vision and ethics, and get to know our board members.

Welcome from Alex Murphy

Our people share a deep commitment to supporting students to achieve their academic and career goals. We believe that any student with the potential to succeed at UTS should have every opportunity to get there. Our mission is to provide these opportunities and to bring university success within reach of more people around the world.

Over 4,000 students from 75 different countries come to us every year to prepare for university. Each year over 90% of our diploma graduates achieve the marks required to articulate into UTS.

What they find when they join UTS:INSEARCH is a truly rewarding student experience. They meet highly qualified teachers and student advisers who care deeply about their success. They discover small classes that provide them with more personalised tuition. As they enjoy terrific facilities, learning resources and technology, students also uncover the benefits of our link to UTS: access to libraries, social clubs, sports, events and more.

As a successful private higher education provider established by UTS, we are constantly investing in our facilities, people and curricula to maintain our reputation as the premium pathway.

Our staff enjoys a diverse, vibrant culture that focuses on doing our very best for students every day. We go home at night knowing that our work, no matter where we are in the organisation, made a difference.

We wish you well and look forward to seeing you at UTS:INSEARCH.
