The majority of Tasmanians live in Hobart. That's a strong reason to make it your first stop. It also hosts the Rolex Sydney to Hobart, one of the world's most prestigious blue water ocean races. Within a short stroll along a city street-connected pathway, you’ll feel the ever-present being and shadows cast by Kunanyi/Mount Wellington.

Tasmania has only one institution, the University of Tasmania (UTAS), and one vocational education institution, TasTAFE. These two well-known schools work together to provide high-quality programmes to over 70,000 students over 20 sites throughout Tasmania. While Tasmania's educational system has a long tradition of excellence and high-quality instruction at all levels, it is a clear leader in Antarctic research, marine and maritime areas, medical science, forestry, and agricultural sciences.

 

Due to its reputation for secure and friendly communities, academic quality, inexpensive tuition costs, and a genuine English study atmosphere, Tasmania also has Australia's fastest expanding secondary school sector.

 

Tasmania has a global reputation as a leader in Antarctic science and policy. You'll come across the organisations spearheading the world scientific effort in the inhospitable, ice-covered southern continent while walking through Hobart's streets.

 

The Aurora Australis, Australia's Antarctic flagship, may be seen at the Port of Hobart. It is named after the aurora australis, a southern hemisphere meteorological occurrence. Students studying in the Antarctic, marine, and maritime sectors have access to a wealth of resources, including on-the-job training, route programmes, scholarship possibilities, employment, and other post-graduate options.

 

Another boat in the Port of Hobart will undoubtedly capture your attention. It's a large, high-powered catamaran with camouflage paint that'll transport you to the Museum of Old and New Art along the Derwent River (MONA). Hobart has gained international recognition as a major arts and cultural destination because to its globally renowned museum.

 

When you study in Hobart or Launceston, you'll never be far from stunning natural beauty that's unlike anywhere else in Australia. The urban centres are small enough to have a strong community spirit while still being large enough to enjoy all of the amenities of a city.
