Can I fit university into my life?

Many people who return to study have other demands, like family and jobs. The good news is that you can plan your course to suit your life.

Part-time and off-campus study
Most courses can be studied part-time, and some courses include options for off-campus study, such as print- or web-based distance education. This means that you can continue to work or care for young children while you are a student. You can also vary the amount of study from year to year, according to your circumstances.

Access to facilities
Many of the University's facilities can be accessed out of normal working hours. A number of computer labs have 24-hour access, and the University Library is open most evenings during the week. Computer facilities and University of Tasmania support materials are also available at your local Online Access Centre and State Library branch.

For students with children, reliable childcare is a necessity for peace of mind. In addition to listed childcare providers across the State, the University has on-campus childcare centres in Hobart and Launceston. At times, these facilities can experience periods of high demand, and thus bookings are essential and waiting lists often apply.
