The University of Tasmania (UTAS) is our premier learning institution. Established in 1890, the prestigious University of Tasmania is Australia’s fourth oldest university with a reputation for exceptional teaching, learning and research.
Ranked in the top 300 in the world, the University of Tasmania provides international leadership into five key research areas:
- Environment, Resources and Sustainability
- Marine, Antarctic and Maritime
- Better Health
- Data, Knowledge and Decisions
- Creativity, Culture and Society
The university’s excellence in these areas is upheld through its prestigious research institutes such as the Australian Maritime College (AMC), Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) and the Menzies Institute for Medical Research.
UTAS offers the benefits of smaller classes and therefore more personalised attention with greater access to supervisors and administrative staff.
Graduates of UTAS are in high demand in Tasmania, Australia and throughout the world. UTAS qualifications are internationally recognised and significantly valued, providing UTAS alumni with access to unlimited opportunities for success.
UTAS graduates earn higher starting salaries and have higher employment outcomes than the Australian average – and yet tuition fees are well below those found in other Australian capital cities.
The University of Tasmania’s respected academic tradition combined with Tasmania’s natural advantages in student safety, affordability, lifestyle and stunning natural environment provides students with a truly enviable study experience.
