University of Tasmania

Our story began 130 years ago, in a sandstone building overlooking Hobart. Since those early days, with three lecturers teaching eleven students, our purpose has remained the same. Through academic excellence, we make our home, and the world, a better place.

Here, success takes a certain determination and imagination. With our isolated location and small population, we have always had to work differently. It’s what makes Tasmanians such creative thinkers and problem solvers. And it has seen us generate powerful ideas both for and from our island.

Literature students ponder the vast Southern Ocean. Scientists sing. Doctors design. Teachers become entrepreneurs. Architects devote themselves to sheltering the needy.

Our creative minds capture our unique land and seascapes, reminding us why our island is worth fighting for. They tell stories that resonate far away. Our institutions lead in medical, agricultural, social and environmental research. Our small setting allows us to test big ideas, leading to greater outcomes for the world.

We welcome all enquiring minds, from near and far, to join our pursuit. Every one of our students becomes part of a welcoming, collaborative community. And our whole island becomes their campus.

We are the University of Tasmania.



Tasmania is a very special place. Studying here, you can immerse yourself in a vibrant city lifestyle, with the wilderness right on your doorstep.

We have campuses in the three distinct regions of Tasmania: Hobart in the South, Launceston in the North and Burnie in the North West. We also have a campus in Sydney.


Hobart is a perfect slice of urban living on the edge of pristine wilderness. Study in the heart of the city, on the harbour, and by the beach.


Launceston is a vibrant city with a welcoming, small-town feel. Our campuses offer hands-on learning in creative and collaborative environments.

Cradle Coast 

Our learning centres offer a gateway to the incredible North West, a region brimming with outdoor adventure, food trails and an enviable coastal lifestyle.


Our Sydney campus offers nursing, paramedic and health management education, all in partnership with local hospitals and health service providers.
