Tasmanian lifestyle

Your university years aren’t just about study - you need a balance between hard work and plenty of play. And Tasmania is the perfect playground, offering you a student lifestyle that can be tailored to your individual style and tastes.

Being a massive island, we are surrounded by waterways and beaches. Think swimming, surfing, sailing and kayaking. We have more reserved wilderness than any other place on the planet – and it’s right on the doorstep of our cities. Hiking, mountain biking, climbing and camping are an easy post-study or weekend activity. Aurora chasing is a great night-time pursuit that captivates locals as much as it does visitors. And we have animals here that simply don’t exist anywhere else in the world. This place is pristine and, quite simply, beautiful.

But if the city is more your style, Tasmania has you covered. Our food, art and culture scene is a hot topic amongst students and tourists around the globe. For good reason. We have award-winning music, arts and food festivals year round, stunning streetscapes, and a café culture that never stops. And whether you’re into retro chic, off-the-rack or artisan fashion, there are shops and markets to keep even the most dedicated shopaholic satisfied.

The best thing is, the close proximity of the uni to Tasmania’s numerous draw cards allows more time for you to get amongst it. Oh – and we’ve got the cleanest air in the world… perfect for blowing away the cobwebs after a big night (on the text books).
