What we offer

Programs offered include traditional pathway courses, such as the University Preparation Program (UPP) and Diploma of University Studies, alongside our new range of Associate Degrees and short courses. These Associate Degrees have been developed in consultation with Tasmanian industry groups to produce industry relevant and career oriented programs, as well as offering up to two years credit into a specified University of Tasmania bachelor degree.

Our study options

University College offers a range of programs that provide students with a pathway into a bachelor degree at the University of Tasmania or the qualification needed to progress in their current position or provide entry into industry.

Our stories

The Associate Degree in Agribusiness has been developed in consultation with the Tasmanian agriculture industry to produce a course that is industry relevant and career oriented. This course is suitable for those currently working in agriculture and those wishing to enter the industry.

If you’re considering enrolling in a bachelor program at the University of Tasmania but feel you may need additional skills, confidence and knowledge about university study prior to commencing, the University Preparation Program (UPP) is for you.

The new Associate Degrees are designed to produce graduates who are work ready, while also providing pathways into a relevant bachelor program at the University of Tasmania. The Associate Degree is just right for people who never thought that they may go to university.

New Associate Degrees coming in 2018

We’re currently developing new Associate Degrees in Applied Technologies and Applied Science for our 2018 intake. These new Associate Degrees offer a range of specialisations to develop graduates who are ready for a career in these rapidly advancing industries.

These programs will also provide an opportunity for those working in industry to accelerate progression in their current position, as well as full articulation pathways for those students who wish to continue their studies.
