Forming strategic links
uNITAR International University (UNITAR) has expanded its international university partnerships by forming a strategic partnership with University of Tasmania, Australia.
The University of Tasmania recognises the high academic standard of UNITAR International University in the delivery of the Diploma in Management, Bachelor of Management and Bachelor of Business Administration.
The purpose of this alliance is to allow UNITAR students direct entry into University of Tasmania’s Faculty of Business with possible advanced standing following terms and to promote a closer relationship between the two respective institutions.
“Partnering with University of Tasmania means we now offer one of the widest range of courses in Australia (58 undergraduate courses).
“It is a good choice for our students to begin their international education pathway,” said UNITAR International University strategic alliance and communications office director Sheikh Fahmy Sheikh Mohamed.
UNITAR students under the Faculty of Business and Information Technology, who successfully complete their Diploma in Management, can be awarded up to eight units of advanced standing, including six specified units of advanced standing, two unspecified electives and direct entry into the second year of Bachelor of Business at the University of Tasmania.
In addition, UNITAR’s Bachelor of Management and Bachelor of Business Administration students may pursue a direct entry with eight units of advanced standing into the second year of Bachelor of Business at the University of Tasmania.
Prior to securing a place at University of Tasmania, UNITAR students must provide an IELTS score with an overall Band of 6 and no band less than 5.5 or a TOEFL score of 550 with a Test of Written English score of no less than 4.5. Test must not be more than 24 months old.
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.
