Where you'll study

The island state of Tasmania, home to the world’s first green party advocating for the environment, is a beautiful place to live and study. The pristine island hosts a variety of nature experiences like hiking, climbing, cycling, and swimming. The University of Tasmania makes the most of the island’s geographic advantages through its research and interdisciplinary courses. Students enjoy exploring the contained socio-ecological system of urban spaces mixed with rivers, mountains, and beaches. This research university is in the top 2 percent of world universities and is known for its teaching methods that create a real impact on the environment at a local and global level. A winner of many sustainability awards, the university acts as an international leader in the areas of health, marine, and Antarctic studies, separation sciences, climate, and ecosystems.
