5. Outstanding services and facilities
UTAS offers a wide range of services to help students in their initial transition to university and then to meet their ongoing needs throughout their degree, including student counselling, career development and employment services, child care, health services and disability services .

9. Ranked in the top 10 universities for research
UTAS enjoys an enviable reputation for teaching and research, which is recognised locally, nationally and internationally . The University has ‘theme areas’ that represent areas of significant research strengths and substantial teaching endeavours . The themes have been created around strengths that come from our people and facilities, and the opportunities presented by our location in Tasmania . •	 Antarctic	and	marine	studies •	 Community,	place	and	change •	 The	environment •	 Frontier	technologies •	 Population	and	health •	 Sustainable	primary	production	 UTAS has university institutes/centres that support our theme areas: •	 The	ARC	Centre	of	Excellence	in	Ore	 Deposits (CODES) •	 The	Menzies	Research	Institute •	 The	Tasmanian	Aquaculture	and	 Fisheries	Institute	(TAFI) •	 The	Tasmanian	Institute	for	 Agricultural	Research	(TIAR) •	 The	Institute	of	Antarctic	and	Southern	 Ocean Studies (IASOS) •	 The	Australian	Maritime	College •	 The	Institute	of	Marine	and	Antarctic	 Studies (IMAS)

The University also offers a number of Overseas Scholarships to help with the cost of the exchange .

3. Smaller and friendlier
UTAS is the State’s only university, with campuses in Hobart, Launceston and Burnie . With just 19,000 students UTAS is small enough to provide a unique environment and offers smaller classes, with friendly interaction between staff and students and a strong focus on the individual .

7. Vibrant university culture
Student organisations on campus offer a full range of student-focused facilities and activities, including entertainment, clubs and societies, legal and welfare advice and campus catering and retail services . All students are encouraged to participate and become involved in the vibrant, cultural and social environment at UTAS .

8. Cosmopolitan city lifestyle but without the hassle
Students at the University of Tasmania enjoy the best of both worlds – excellence in academic teaching and research and a campus life free from overcrowding and access difficulties suffered at many larger universities .

10. Tasmania Scholarships Program
The Tasmania Scholarships Program is one of the most extensive scholarship programs offered anywhere in Australia . In addition to a wide range of sponsored scholarships for undergraduate and postgraduate students, the University also offers a significant program of access scholarships and bursaries for students who would find the cost of tertiary study prohibitive .
