Introduction/Location

The University of Tasmania is located in Tasmania, the island state of Australia. It is an archipelago of more than 300 islands - a land of dramatic coastlines, rugged mountains, spectacular wilderness, sparkling highland lakes and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Tasmania is world renowned for its untamed and beautiful landscapes; friendly, welcoming people; a pleasing temperate climate; wonderful wine and food; a rich history and a relaxed island lifestyle. Exhilarating adventures await those who dare to be different and are prepared to travel that extra mile to be rewarded. If you are looking for an experience beyond just city lights (they have those too) then Tasmania is that extra special destination.

Hobart is the capital and largest city in Tasmania. It is the second oldest city in Australia, after Sydney. The University's campus at Hobart is set on one hundred hectares at Sandy Bay, 10 minutes from the city centre and on the River Derwent. It has the magnificent Mount Wellington as its backdrop and much of the upper campus of the University is in natural bush-land.

Around 11,000 students (2,000 international students) are enrolled at the Hobart campus.  The academic strengths of the Hobart campus include Aboriginal studies, Antarctic studies, Fine Arts, Geography and Environmental studies, Law, Journalism, Media and Communications, and Zoology.


Academics

UTAS Course Catalog: Courses and Units
Please note: Semester 1 at UTAS = CSU spring semester; Semester 2 at UTAS = CSU fall semester

Besides offering traditional courses in Science, Engineering and Architecture, the Faculty of Science & Engineering at the University of Tasmania is able to draw upon its unique location, the wilderness and wildlife to offer specialist and distinctive programs. Some of the distinctive areas include: Natural Environment & Wilderness Studies, Institute of Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies, Zoology & Marine, Freshwater and Antarctic Biology, Plant Science & Forest Ecology, Geology (Environmental, Geophysics, Geochemistry, Economic), Aquaculture, and Agricultural Science.

In addition, students may study in other disciplines as well. The university offers courses in Art, Business, Economics, Health Education, Social Work, and Tourism, among others. Students from disciplines outside the College Natural Sciences are encourages to apply.

Students usually choose three to four courses (37.5% or 50% weight) per semester depending on their major and interest. A 12.5% UTAS class is worth four credits, so taking three courses is considered full-time.

There are a limited number or exchange places available each term. Preference is given to students who are Colorado residents with financial need as determined by the financial aid office.   


Accommodations

Students participating in this program will be housed in university accommodations. Students can select either Residential Colleges (dormitories) or off-campus apartments managed by the university.
