Tasmania is uniquely placed to offer a true Australian experience. The state is an overwhelmingly English-speaking environment and has a traditional Australian culture, all in a stunning and fun-packed location. Less than two hours from Sydney and less than one hour from Melbourne, Tasmania is known for its friendly, welcoming people, pleasant temperate climate, easy access to wilderness and heritage, and a cosmopolitan lifestyle with a strong arts culture.
The two international University of Tasmania campuses in Hobart and Launceston are large enough to offer you a vibrant and unique learning environment with world-class facilities, but still small enough to ensure friendly connections between staff and students, and a strong focus on the needs of the individual.
