Study­ing at Tas­ma­nia

Tas­ma­nia is the per­fect place to live and study. UNITAR stu­dents will en­joy study­ing in a scenic state that is huge enough to sup­port vi­brant cities and thriv­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, but small enough to be friendly, and of­fer a high-qual­ity life­style.

It is roughly the same size as Sri Lanka or Ire­land and has a pop­u­la­tion of half a mil­lion people. It’s only a quick di­rect flight or ferry trip to the main pop­u­la­tion cen­tre of Aus­tralia (on the East­ern seaboard) and ser­viced daily by ma­jor air­lines. For ex­am­ple, Launce­s­ton to Mel­bourne is just 50 min­utes. Ho­bart and Launce­s­ton air­ports are only 10 and 20 min­utes’ drive from UTAS cam­puses.

Tas­ma­nia also pro­vides a re­laxed life­style that com­bines cos­mopoli­tan cul­ture with a great cli­mate and a breath­tak­ing nat­u­ral en­vi­ron­ment.

Be­sides be­ing a pop­u­lar tourism des­ti­na­tion, Tas­ma­nia is a great place to live due to its af­ford­abil­ity, ease of get­ting around, and safe, friendly com­mu­ni­ties.
