Cost of Living

Tasmanian cities have been shown to have some of the lowest average student weekly costs in the country.

Whether you live and study in Hobart or Launceston, your cost of living will largely depend on your accommodation choice, lifestyle and budgeting skills, but the estimated annual cost of living for a student in Tasmania is between $13,500 and $19,000*.

Many students choose to work part-time to contribute to meeting these costs (see student stories).

UTAS campuses are within walking or cycling distance of city centres, local shops and services; and regular affordable bus services operate to and from the campuses.

Fresh local produce is readily available and can be found in abundance at the State's many markets, including the weekly Salamanca Market and local farmers' markets.

Bringing your family to Australia

Temporary Student Visas may allow students to bring family members to Australia as 'dependents'. Please contact the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP) to determine the possibility of your family accompanying you while you undertake study in Australia.

Students with school-aged children should be aware that they may be required to pay school fees.

* International students should be aware that for the purposes of Streamlined Visa Processing, students will be required to confirm they have sufficient funds to support annual living costs of AUD$18,610.
