U Tasmania as a state of mind

The uni plans to promote undergraduate study to interstate students, as well as internationals

Vice Chancellor Rufus Black was in the Hobart Mercury in the weekend pitching the idea, which is defined in the new university plan as being to, “attract interstate students into our core courses to compensate for the young Tasmanians who go off-island, ensure those courses are of a sustainable size and enable a healthy balance between domestic and international students right across the university.”

The message is that, “our whole island is your campus.” “If you’re in one of the world’s most extraordinary locations, you have to get outside, explore and live while you learn,” the 2020 course guide announces.

U Tas can but try – and make sure the accommodation expansion to ensure enough student beds on Hobart delivers. CMM January 14
