The University of Tasmania has been welcoming online, or distance, students for over twenty years and is one of Australia’s largest providers of online higher education. Our online students aren’t just those who live a long way from a campus; they’re often busy individuals who want to add university study to their work and family commitments and need the flexibility that online study offers.
If you’re beginning your journey as an online student at UTAS, welcome! You are joining a supportive community of fellow students and teaching staff who value connection, engagement and success. We’re here to ensure you have a wide range of support and services accessible by phone, online or by visiting a UTAS campus. Studying online does not mean studying alone, so now’s the time to explore all the information, resources and support below, and be ready to start your learning journey with us!
