University of Tasmania

The University of Tasmania is classed within the top two per cent of Universities worldwide and has received numerous awards for excellence in teaching.

Welcome to one of the world’s most spectacular natural environments. Framed by beaches, snowfields and wilderness, from our stunning island home in Tasmania we’re free to think on a bigger scale. Whether it’s in our teaching, research, or even student lifestyle,

Changing the world is not simple. It takes thought, time, persistence, and insight. But most of all, it takes something extraordinary. So at the University of Tasmania, we’ve made the pursuit of the extraordinary a never-ending commitment. It influences everything we do. The way we teach. The way we research. The way we learn. And the way we live.

Founded in 1890, the University of Tasmania has a rich and proud history which will be celebrated in 2015, as we reach our 125th anniversary. We're the fourth oldest university in Australia and this vintage earns us the prestigious title of a sandstone university; one of the nation's oldest tertiary institutions.

Throughout our history we've been a stage for discoveries of global significance, a catalyst for social, economic and cultural development and – arguably most importantly – a place of life and learning for 90,000 alumni who have built their lives and careers in Tasmania and around the world. From Andrew Inglis Clark to Sir Guy Green, Enid Campbell and Lara Giddings, we've always been distinguished by staff and students who strode along the sometimes rocky path of knowledge and discovery and then set out to make a better world.
