Study outstanding courses in one of the world’s most extraordinary locations
Tasmania is unique and so are Tasmanians. We believe in our island. We embrace the unusual. And we love imagination.
From our vibrant cities to the stillness of our World Heritage-listed wilderness, our incredible island is a place of contrasts – and we embrace its character in everything we do. We offer great courses in an extraordinary location, and our teaching is supported by world-leading research, so you know you’re getting direct access to the best expertise.
Our whole island is your campus
We know that if you’re in one of the world’s most extraordinary locations, you have to get outside, explore and live while you learn. That’s why our courses give you the opportunity to explore nature and access adventure while you study, through field work and hands-on learning experiences that take you underwater, over seas and across our incredible island. No matter which University of Tasmania campus you choose to study at, you will be close to stunning wilderness, and part of a vibrant and supportive community.
A focus on excellence
Our nationally-distinctive architecture, nursing, medicine and law courses give you access to real-life learning experiences. We’re the only university in the state, which means you will get unparalleled access to industry connections through our institution’s partnerships. Our very island itself is a living laboratory, giving us excellent course strengths in the natural and social sciences. Being the gateway to the Southern Ocean gives us unique study offerings in marine, climate, Antarctic and ocean science and a broad range of maritime studies.
We’re passionate about the arts, and Tasmania is now known around the world as the centre for contemporary art and the home of Mona. As an art student here you will be at the heart of this creative revolution. Our students showcase their creative work to the community, guided by teachers who are themselves respected and experienced artists. We never forget our past either, as our historians share their insights into our state’s fascinating convict past and honour our indigenous heritage.
Spectacular student life
At our Cradle Coast campus you could live in our West Park Apartments right next to the Makers’ Workshop, where you can interact with real artisans at work. And a few more steps takes you onto the beach of one of the world’s most stunning coastlines.
Whether you’re Tassie born and bred, or you’re joining us from interstate or overseas, we know that when you become part of our University community, you’re on your way to something amazing. We will do whatever we can to make your Uni experience exactly what you need it to be: An adventure to the career you want.
