There's no such option under systemsettings > Date&Time
On the "Date and Time" tab, there's an option to set the time using a time server, below that is a calendar, and on the right is an analog clock.
On the "Time Zone" tab you can select a city to set your current time zone.
Neither tab has an option for Utc time.
