Tasmania is a place of contrasts, boasting vibrant cities and tranquil UNESCO World Heritage Natural Sites. Roughly the size of Sri Lanka, Australia’s southern-most state embraces its unique island character and has remained one of the world’s best kept secrets.
As the island’s largest educational institution, the University of Tasmania is deeply committed to providing hands-on learning and an unforgettable adventure. It offers more than 150 courses, including traditional degrees in medicine, law, engineering, architecture, business and the arts. It is also a pioneer in developing highly respected non-traditional programs, like marine and Antarctic science, maritime engineering, and environmental studies.
With a variety of dual degree options, students can combine their passion with great job prospects, all within a supportive and welcoming environment.
The University of Tasmania is internationally recognized for excellence in research and teaching. In the QS World University Rankings, it leads in English, biological sciences, chemistry, education, environmental sciences, law, medicine, sociology and economics. It is also among the top 100 schools worldwide for Earth and marine Sciences, as well as agriculture and forestry in the same ranking.
The university’s state-of-the-art learning facilities include a world-leading health sciences precinct, a media school in the vibrant Salamanca district of Hobart, a bold and ambitious arts center, the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Science, and the Australian Maritime College.
The University of Tasmania prides itself on smaller class sizes, strong support and ready access to lecturers and tutors – all of which fosters a personalized learning experience. Its classes are taught in English, which increases language proficiency and strengthens the professional networks of its roughly 7,000 foreign students.
The University also offers a range of generous scholarships for international students. These include the Tasmanian International Scholarship, which provides a 25% discount of tuition fees.
As a place to live, Tasmania is one of the safest states in Australia. Away from the bustle of big city life, students enjoy an environment conducive to thinking and learning. This learning extends far beyond the classroom, with opportunities to visit globally acclaimed national parks and wilderness sites, both in Tasmania across the rest of Australia.
Every student who joins the University of Tasmania becomes part of a diverse, creative and welcoming community. The University ensures that its graduates enter the workplace with the skills and practical experience to thrive in their chosen careers.
