University of Tasmania

The University of Tasmania is one of Australia’s oldest and most respected universities, with world-leading expertise in many fields of study.

At the University of Tasmania you will enjoy a wide choice of interesting courses from the more traditional courses like medicine, law, engineering arts and business, to our niche programs like maritime engineering, food science, economic geology, and marine and Antarctic studies. We also just happen to be located in one of the most stunning and fun parts of the world!

Founded in 1890, we’re Australia’s fourth oldest university. And we’ve put those years’ of experience to good use – we’re Australia’s premier university for teaching and research excellence having received more teaching awards than any other Australian university. We’re also located in the only state in Australia to have made Lonely Planet’s Top Ten must visit destinations. What’s more, Tasmania is not only one of the cheapest places to live in Australia, our campuses are based in some of the nation’s safest, friendliest and fun cities.


Through our international scholarship programs we’ve been making our world class education more accessible to students from around the world. Our largest scholarship is the Tasmanian International Scholarship (TIS) which provides commencing international students with a 25% reduction in registered tuition fees for the duration of your course.


So if you want a study experience that is different from any other, or a research environment that is encouraging, collaborative and full of possibilities, think the University of Tasmania. We are open to talent.


The three main campuses are located in some of the country’s safest, friendliest and fun cities – Hobart, Launceston and Burnie. Not only is Tasmania a stunning destination, it is also one of the cheapest places to live in Australia.
