University of Tasmania

 

The University of Tasmania has a total student population of almost 15,000: approximately 13,500 Australian students, plus 1,400 international students from more than 60 countries. Founded in 1890, the University is one of the oldest universities in Australia. The largest campus is in Hobart, the second oldest city in Australia.

Location IconLocation

Tasmania
Tasmania, the island state of Australia, is located 40 degrees south of the equator and is an archipelago of more than 300 islands - a land of dramatic coastlines, rugged mountains, spectacular wilderness, sparkling highland lakes and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

When you add the vibrant cities of Hobart and Launceston with their wide range of cafes, restaurants, pubs, theaters, cinemas, shopping centers and open-air markets and you've got the best of all worlds in one place.

Tasmanians breathe the world's cleanest air, drink pure water and grow mouth-watering produce from rich, fertile soils. Its people are resourceful, applying their creativity and design skills to artistic endeavors, scientific research and production. Tasmania has more poets, musicians, writers and artists per head of population than any other state of Australia.

Hobart
Hobart is the capital and largest city in Tasmania, yet it is free from overcrowding, traffic congestion, serious pollution and major crime. Situated close to the mouth of the Derwent River and nestled in the foothills of Mount Wellington, it seems that nearly every home, office and classroom has a magnificent view. In Hobart students are always meeting someone new, yet frequently bump into someone they know.
