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

While it is important to get this sorted out as soon as possible, before making any changes to your enrolment it is essential that you discuss your problem with a Study Success Adviser

They will ask the right questions to understand your problem and work out your best options.
