What's your story?

No matter your story, where you have come from or where you will end up, the University of Tasmania is pleased that you chose to start this chapter of your life with UTAS.

Coming to university is a life-changing experience, no matter where you've come from. It is an exciting and rewarding time in your life, but there may also be times when you feel stressed, anxious or unsure about how to manage all the demands of uni life. It's important to know that you are not alone on this journey and there are a range of services to support you to succeed.

Our team know how challenging it can be to transition to the university environment and they are able to share their tips on how to survive your first year at UTAS. We recruit our staff based on the diversity of their experiences before and after they come to UTAS. The Student Success team has a passion for helping others and the ability to empathise with first year students who are still experiencing things for the first time. Read our stories to learn more.
