Our University

Welcome to the University of Tasmania (UTAS).

The notion of partnership characterises the way we operate at the University of Tasmania.

Our primary partnership is between staff and students who work together in the areas of core business: achieving excellence in teaching and learning and research. Our University offers one of the widest range of courses in Australia (more than 100 undergraduate courses), in an environment where each student can enter into a partnership with staff to achieve their goals.

The University has adopted a strategy of preserving and developing teaching and learning and research of national and international significance in areas that take advantage of our location in the state of Tasmania.

We work with universities around the world to offer students an international experience as part of their study. We have exchange arrangements with institutions in more than 90 countries throughout Europe, Asia and North America. We also work with researchers in many countries on issues that have international significance. A tiny sample of some of the work that researchers and post-graduate students are involved in includes global warming (with NASA), tourism in China, aquaculture in Vietnam, forestry in Indonesia, computing in Korea, cardiovascular disease with the World Health Organisation and mineral resources projects in 17 countries.

We have a formal partnership arrangement with the Tasmanian State Government and work with local and state government to develop Tasmania economically, socially and culturally.
