Study in Burnie

With so much on offer around the Cradle Coast, you will be surprised by the number of courses on offer here.

Why study in Burnie?

A new campus is being built at West Park, on the spectacular coastal foreshore and will be in operation from 2021. The project is part of the University’s $300m Northern Transformation, which will include new facilities and regionally distinctive courses becoming available.

The campus offers students flexible teaching and learning spaces, together with exercise and recreational facilities and modern, purpose-built teaching and learning facilities.

The Cradle Coast campus is home to the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA). A joint venture between the University and the Tasmanian Government, TIA is a centre of excellence in agricultural research, development, extension, education and training.

Also located at Cradle Coast is the University's Rural Clinical School (RCS). The RCS offers training for medical and health students, providing experience in acute and primary care clinical training in rural and remote settings.

I think we’re very fortunate to study here. Our class sizes are small — about twenty students in each lecture — so there’s a lot of individual attention for every student.
