Tasmania is a place unlike any other. Our island is a living laboratory where environment, industry and society are uniquely connected. With 45% of the island being National Park or World Heritage listed it is a stunning place to get a world class education.
The University of Tasmania was founded in 1890, and is one of Australia’s Sandstone Universities (Australia’s fourth oldest university). The University offers various undergraduate and graduate programs in a range of disciplines, and has links with 20 specialist research institutes, cooperative research centres and faculty-based research centres; many of which are regarded as nationally and internationally competitive leaders. The University's Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies have strongly contributed to the University's multiple 5 rating scores (well above world standard) for excellence in research awarded by the Australian Research Council. The University also delivers Bachelors, Masters and PhDs at the Australian Maritime College, the national centre for maritime education, training and research.
