Conservatorium of Music

Welcome to First Year

Welcome to First Year

Welcome to the University of Tasmania, and to your first year at the Conservatorium.

We realise that, while university is an exciting experience, filled with new intellectual and social opportunities, it can at times also feel isolating and confusing. This site has been developed to give you some support as you find your feet as a student and as a musician. It contains resources aimed at making your university life a more rewarding and enriching experience.

These resources will be updated throughout the year and so we encourage you to return here as often as issues arise.

Good luck!
