The Faculties comprise 53 Schools or Centres. The University specialises in programs which reflect the distinctiveness of the island of Tasmania and its unique location and environment. These include: Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies, Natural Environment and Wilderness Studies, the primary industries of Agriculture, Aquaculture, Fisheries, Mining and Forestry, and Population and Community Studies, not to mention many more Undergraduate, Postgraduate and Research specialties. Tasmania offers international students a unique opportunity to gain internationally recognised qualification in a relaxed, safe and beautiful environment.
