Founded in 1890, the University of Tasmania has a rich and proud history. The University of Tasmania (UTAS) is a public research university located in Tasmania, Australia. It is the fourth oldest university in Australia and this vintage earns UTAS the prestigious title of a sandstone university; one of the nation's oldest tertiary institutions. It is a member of the international Association of Commonwealth Universities and the Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higherv learning. The university is highly regarded for its commitment to excellence in learning and teaching.
Throughout its history UTAS has been a stage for discoveries of global significance, a catalyst for social, economic and cultural development and – arguably most importantly – a place of life and learning for 90,000 alumni who have built their lives and careers in Tasmania and around the world. From Andrew Inglis Clark to Sir Guy Green, Enid Campbell and Lara Giddings, it has been always been distinguished by staff and students who strode along the sometimes rocky path of knowledge and discovery and then set out to make a better world.
The University of Tasmania is also a prism through which Tasmania can look to the world and the world can look to Tasmania; a bridge from our island that connects people, geographies, cultures and ideas.
