A university for Tasmania, from Tasmania.
Our mission is to improve the lives of Tasmanians and care for our island home. But we also look outward to help meet the world’s challenges from our unique vantage point here in Tasmania.
The Aboriginal people of lutruwita/Tasmania stewarded the island sustainably for tens of thousands of years and we seek to build a future together with them. Our aim is to see Tasmania become a model for a more sustainable world.
Home to both pristine wilderness and vibrant cities, Tasmania is a very special place. Our island informs our teaching, our research, and our unique ways of thinking. We have a distinctive culture that produces thinkers, writers, artists, and musicians, whose influence is felt around the globe.
Our location also gives us unique research strengths with access to extraordinary wilderness on land, at sea and in the Antarctic, and with some of the finest agricultural land and most diverse geologies in the world. With a proud maritime heritage, we continue to train the nation’s seafarers and design the next generation of vessels for above and below the seas. Having an unrivalled vantage of the Southern skies, we do unique work in astronomy and astrophysics.
At the University of Tasmania, we commit to making our students more than a number, and the island our campus. Through our dedicated teaching staff and class sizes, everyone gets the support they need to thrive. We also offer scholarships and pathways to nurture each individual learning journey.
