Study in Hobart, Tasmania!
Hobart is Tasmania’s capital city and the second oldest capital city in Australia.
As Australia’s only island state, Tasmania offers a unique student experience amongst a green and sustainable lifestyle.
Hobart is the closest Australian city to the South Pole, so it’s no surprise that Tasmania is an internationally renowned leader in Antarctic science and research.
The Australian Antarctic Division, the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) and the Bureau of Meteorology’s (BoM) Antarctic office are all located in Hobart.
Consequently, students studying in Antarctic, Marine and Maritime fields have great opportunities to access expertise in these areas.
Hobart also has a flourishing arts scene with the internationally renowned Museum of Old and New Art, more commonly known as MONA.
The Tasmanian lifestyle is focussed on a strong connection to nature.
You can drink Australia’s purest water, eat fresh produce from local street markets and take a tour of Tasmania’s famous gin and whisky distilleries.
Hobart is close to some of the most breathtaking natural scenery in Australia.
From Mount Wellington to the rugged Tasman Peninsula, to Bruny Island, the Huon Valley, Mount Field National Park and historic Port Arthur.
About forty per cent of Tasmania is protected in stunningly beautiful national parks, with a diversity of unspoiled habitat and ecosystems of plants and animals found nowhere else in the world.
So special are these national parks that a large proportion are included in the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage area.
Tasmania’s education sector has a long history of excellence and high quality teaching with the University of Tasmania and Tasmania TAFE.
Hobart is a safe, friendly and relaxed city.
You’ll love being close to so much natural beauty!
