International Students

Welcome to the Faculty of Law's International Student Website

Welcome to the UTAS Faculty of Law international students' website, which showcases the programs and services we offer our international students.



A UTAS Law degree is formally recognised by the legal profession and relevant government accreditation bodies in most Commonwealth countries including the United Kingdom, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, India, South Africa, New Zealand and most Pacific nations.

The University of Tasmania Law School warmly welcomes international students and has done so since the 1950s. Today, a great number of students from many Commonwealth countries including Malaysia, Singapore and India undertake their legal studies in Tasmania. Many complete their entire law degree at UTAS but others come on an exchange from universities around the world.

The Law Faculty offers a unique and innovative support program for international students. The objectives of the International Students Support Program (ISSP) are to assist international students to achieve their full academic potential and to ensure that their time studying in Australia is memorable. A staff coordinator and a team of dedicated tutors provide mentoring and supervision, a bridging program for new students, extra tutorials and social events. In 2008 this program won a National Award for Services Supporting Student Learning.
