University of Tasmania

Founded in 1890, the University of Tasmania is Australia's fourth oldest university. University of Tasmania is recognized by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, Australia. The University of Tasmania offers a wide range of study areas including social sciences, humanities, business, law, engineering, education, architecture and science. Particular strengths that attract Study Abroad students to University of Tasmania include:
- Animal and Marine Sciences
- Geography and Environmental Studies (including Natural Environment, Oceanography, Wilderness Management, and Antarctic Studies)
- Fine and Performing Arts
- Indigenous Studies, Tasmania Literature
- Engineering

These particular areas of study take full advantage of Tasmania's National Parks and World Heritage Area by offering a variety of units which include field trips that are integral to each course and provide a real hands-on educational experience.

With a total student population of 27,000, including 3,300 international students from over 95 countries, UTAS is big enough to be well resourced but small enough to offer an encouraging and collaborative environment for a study abroad experience. Class sizes are generally small and lecturers and tutors can be consulted without difficulty. Tasmania is one of Australia's best-kept secrets. The people in Tasmania are extremely friendly and there aren't a lot of Americans studying there, so students have a great opportunity to live with and interact with Australian students.

With a history spanning almost 125 years, the university is ranked in the top ten research universities in Australia and in the top two per cent of universities in the world. The University is ranked in the top 10 universities in Australia for research and boasts links with 20 specialist research institutes and research centers.
