Be the change you want to see in the world

The University of Tasmania recognises the potential for leadership to develop at all levels of society and for leadership to be both personally and collectively transformational.

The University encourages all students to engage with concepts of leadership through self-discovery and participate in extension activities that can lead to positive change in the world. Students have the opportunity to engage in a range of leadership development opportunities relevant to their aspirations.

Leadership Learning: learn and reflect

We believe that everyone has the potential to unlock the leader within, and we have designed a suite of learning options to enable you to discover, develop and extend your leadership potential.

These include self-directed online modules and workshops as well as intensive programs to allow you to practice your leadership in the community and an academic unit that can be part of your degree.

Leadership Experiences: Get involved and contribute
