University of Tasmania

About University of Tasmania

Your university years are not just about study, let’s be honest. You need a balance between hard work and plenty of play. And Tasmania is the perfect playground. Being an island, it is surrounded by waterways. Think yachts, kayaking, swimming and surfing.

They have more reserved wilderness than any other place on the planet – and it’s right on the doorstep of the cities. Hiking, mountain biking, climbing and camping are an easy afternoon or weekend activity. And it has animals that simply don’t exist anywhere else in the world. This place is pristine and quite simply, beautiful.

But if the city is more your style, Tasmania has you covered. The food, art and culture scene is a hot topic in tourism mags across the globe. For good reason. They have award winning festivals year round, stunning streetscapes, and a café culture that never stops.

The best thing is, the close proximity of the Uni to Tasmania’s numerous drawcards...
