UTS PUBLICATIONS STYLE GUIDE

The official name is the 'University of Technology Sydney'. In formal publications, or publications for an external audience, spell out in full on first mention then use 'the university' or 'UTS' (or the pronouns 'it' or 'its').

The University of Technology Sydney places a strong emphasis on workplace experience. UTS is known for its practice-based courses and the university will continue to introduce new courses.

Note: As of 1 August 2015 UTS adopted a minor change to its name by dropping the comma from the full title to become 'University of Technology Sydney'.
