About University of Tasmania:

The University of Tasmania (UTAS) is Australia’s fourth oldest university. It is ranked in the top 300 universities worldwide1 and is one of Australia’s premier university for teaching excellence, recently receiving more teaching awards than any other Australian university. 2 With more than 34,000 students, the University provides a creative and stimulating academic environment and vibrant campus life. While maintaining a distinctive Tasmanian identity, the University of Tasmania offers a truly internationalised curriculum and broad access to a diverse range of degrees, student exchanges and learning experiences to shape future global leaders. Our scholars are able to interact with the friendly locals at university and throughout the Tasmanian community, giving you a great opportunity to improve your English and career prospects while enjoying a true ‘Australian experience’. Beyond the student experience, the University’s community is strengthened by a network of more than 105,000 alumni spanning over 120 countries, and is underpinned by collaborative partnerships with other organisations who share our strategic outlook 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.
