University of Tasmania

About University of Tasmania

The University of Tasmania acknowledges the Palawa and Gadigal, the traditional owners of the land on which we live and work in Tasmania and City of Sydney, respectively, and recognises their enduring culture. Founded in 1890 and the country’s fourth oldest university, its mission is to serve the entire state of Tasmania and it does so mindful of the need to be both place-based and globally significant. That need partly stems from our unique location as a large and complex archipelago with a population over 550,000 that is proximate to the Southern Ocean and Antarctica and our connections to many places and peoples around the world. The university has an outstanding record of supporting students to become leading alumni; has cutting-edge research strengths across the humanities, arts, social sciences, sciences, engineering, business, law, and health and medicine. It has an estimated staff cohort of nearly 2,000 staff and nearly 34,000 students. In 2022, it was ranked #1 in the world on climate action by the Times Higher Education impact rankings.
