International Exchange Programs

The University of Tasmania has formal links with a number of overseas institutions. The agreements permit Utas students to study at those institutions without paying tuition fees, for a period of one or two semesters.

Students remain enrolled at the University of Tasmania, in special enrolment codes, and pay HECS.

Applications are called on a twice-yearly basis and applicants are ranked on the basis of their academic performance. Applicants must have completed at least one year of full time study in the Faculty and have no outstanding fees, such as library fines or outstanding Services & Amenities fees.

Students interested in taking part in this program should check notice boards in the Faculty when applications are called. In addition, a list of Universities involved in the scheme are shown at the International Student Office, along with their Website addresses. Students are encouraged to check these websites to help them decide on a program which is attractive to them. Costs: students pay the airfares, accommodation and living expenses, as well as HECS. International students pay fees as per their normal University courses.

Language programs

In the School of Asian Languages and Studies, students can choose to study Chinese, Indonesian or Japanese language in-country.

These programs are open to students studying the second or third year of the language, and, in the case of Japanese and Indonesian, part of the Honours program. Students enrol in University of Tasmania course codes and pay HECS on their enrolment. Direct credit is therefore given for their degree studies.

Further information can be obtained by accessing the website for the School. Costs: students pay the airfares, accommodation and living expenses, as well as HECS. International students pay fees as per their normal University courses.

Applications are open to students from any Australian university who have completed 25% level 100 units in any faculty. The unit is HPA276/376 Indo-Tibetan History, Philosophy and Culture, weighted at 25%.

Interested students should contact the School of Philosophy for details on how to apply. Costs: students pay the airfares, accommodation and living expenses, as well as HECS.

Study Abroad

The Faculty also permits students to undertake study overseas on an individual basis at Universities or other institutions which are not part of the formal International Exchange Program.

Students must first seek permission of Faculty so that the value of the program can be assessed and credit awarded. Students are liable to pay tuition fees at the institution but would not have to pay HECS.

Interested students are advised to make contact with the relevant School to discuss possible programs. Costs: students pay the airfares, accommodation and living expenses plus tuition fees for the program.
