Why University College?

Pathway into further study

Our range of associate degree and pathway programs can provide you with a direct pathway into a University of Tasmania bachelor degree. Through these programs, you may receive up to two years credit into a specified bachelor degree. This means you can complete your bachelor degree without needing to study for longer than necessary.

Pathway to a career

Graduation from an associate degree can provide an entry opportunity for those seeking work in industry. Through the embedded hands-on learning nature of the associate degree, you'll graduate work ready with the ability to apply discipline knowledge in the workplace.

Industry links

Many of our courses, particularly our associate degrees, offer links to Tasmanian industry and businesses. You will have the opportunity to directly engage with these industries through participation in work placements and hands-on learning.

Supportive learning environment

We understand that entering higher education can be daunting for many students. We offer a flexible, supportive learning environment, with friendly and approachable staff. Additionally, support staff help to ensure your transition into higher education is a smooth one.

Full-time or part-time study

Our courses offer full-time or part-time study options, allowing you the flexibility to find the right balance between work, life and study. It is even possible to switch between full-time and part-time during the duration of your course to better suit your circumstances.

Flexible delivery

Students have different needs when it comes to learning, which is why we offer a range of delivery methods, including online, face-to-face and blended delivery (a combination of face-to-face and online). Our courses allow you to tailor your learning to suit your individual needs and interests.
