Burnie campuses

Burnie is the thriving heart of the North West. Our campuses will put you alongside a community of makers, artists and industry leaders.

Cradle Coast

Located on the picturesque North West Coast, our Cradle Coast campus offers modern, purpose-built teaching and learning facilities.

Here, we offer flexible, hands-on learning that takes place alongside the industries transforming the North-West. At our regional campus, you'll find the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture (TIA), the Rural Clinical School (RCS), and student accommodation at West Park.

We're also building an exciting new campus, which will be open from mid-2021.
