University of Tasmania: An unforgettable adventure

At the University of Tasmania, you’ll get an education that’s unlike any other, on an island where incredible things are happening.

It’s the only university in the state, meaning enrolment unlocks a truly unique learning opportunity on a campus that leaves most first-time visitors speechless. Here, there’s a living natural and social science lab to explore; an emphasis on real-world learning, with all its socio-cultural, economic and environmental challenges and opportunities; an arts community taking risks to pioneer new ways of doing, sharing facilities in a place of ancient cultural wisdom; and an island of inspiration, collaboration, aspiration and transformation –with students at the heart of it all.

When it comes to learning, expect to go beyond classroom walls – standing shoulder to shoulder with industry professionals, in the lab, on the water, and in the offices, studios and performance spaces most can only dream about.

Many international students appreciate Tasmania’s uniqueness, which continuously pioneers new ways of learning, living and thriving. “I love the environment here, the regional setting, being close to nature, and it’s such a quiet place,” confirms student Perpetual Onuigbo.

“The University of Tasmania is just in the right spot, it has a track record of good academic outcomes, a lot of Nigerians graduate from the University of Tasmania, and the University’s sustainability goals really interest me as well. It’s such an interesting place with a lot of opportunities. I’ve been growing the whole time I’ve been here.”

A great place to study, a great place to live

The island’s vibrant cities offer a safer and less overwhelming experience than bigger ones on the mainland. Here, you’ll be able to explore, discover yourself and find your people in arts, outdoors, study, sports, and social communities.

Stepping outside, you’ll find the island’s natural wonders – including Planet Earth’s largest temperate rainforest and five UNESCO-listed historical sites – all within easy access.

When it comes to creativity, Mona, Mona Foma, The Unconformity, Ten Days on the Island, Junction Arts Festival, and Taste of Summer make Tasmania a wild destination in the international arts scene.
