Study abroad at the University of Tasmania
The University of Tasmania (UTAS) was founded in 1890, making it the fourth oldest university in Australia. It’s a public research institution that offers more than 100 undergraduate and 150 postgraduate programs. These include degrees in law, medicine, business, IT, arts, education and science, as well as niche programs like marine and Antarctic science, maritime engineering, food safety, rural and polar health, and environmental law and governance.
The University is located in Tasmania, and has two main campuses, one in Hobart, and the other in Launceston.
