Study in Tasmania
"We’re all connected here, so we can do things that wouldn’t be possible in bigger centres. The community likes to be involved in the research, and since we all know one another in health care and health research we can work together on things and share."
Learn to think Tasmanian
It’s different in Tasmania, and we have learned to embrace it - to make it our strength. Our cities are fun and beautiful, yet they are among the safest in the world. We are never far from the wilderness and its special animals, the land and sea, clean air and clean water.
In Tasmania, you can hear yourself think yet you won’t feel alone. We want to know your name.
We have the highest percentage of scientists in the Southern Hemisphere, with specialties in marine and Antarctic studies, in renewable energy and climate change, population health, and a culture of invention and cooperation no matter what you choose to study, and then become.
You can make your career here, in a Tasmanian enterprise or in an economy that will encourage you to start your own venture. Or you can take Tasmanian thinking with you, wherever you go.

“People often said to me, ‘there’s no jobs in marine science', but it's not true. Tasmania has one of the highest percentages of marine scientists of anywhere on earth.”
