A public research university with its main campus in Tasmania, Australia, is called the University of Tasmania (UTAS). Built around 1890. It is the fourth-oldest university in Australia.  The institution is made of sandstone and a part of both the Association of Southeast Asian Institutions of Higher Learning and the international Association of Commonwealth Universities.


The university collaborates with 20 specialized research institutes and cooperative research centers, and it provides a variety of undergraduate and graduate degrees in a number of subject areas. The university's multiple 5 rating scores (far above world standard) for excellence in research earned by the Australian Research Council are in large part due to the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies. At the Australian Maritime College, the country's hub for maritime education, training, and research, the university also offers tertiary education.


There are three main campuses for the institution, located in Burnie, Launceston, and Hobart. On its Sydney sites in Darlinghurst and Rozelle, the College of Health and Medicine also houses a variety of small, specialized facilities. Additionally, it shares a research space with the Australian National Maritime Museum in Pyrmont.

The research strengths of the institution aim to benefit from Tasmania's distinctive features, notably its natural environment and geographic location. The research is strongest in the areas of data, knowledge, and decision-making as well as the environment, resources, and sustainability; creativity, culture, and society; health; the marine, antarctic, and maritime.

The University of Tasmania is a great place to start your studies for a career in ocean governance, marine biology, or the fisheries and aquaculture sectors since it is a gateway to Antarctica and has a natural marine laboratory right outside your door.

This master's degree is the only one in the world that combines marine science with a specialization in the southern seas and Antarctica. The Institute for Marine & Antarctic Studies (IMAS) offers you access to professionals with global recognition and industry-leading facilities to help you launch your career.

The benefits of the Master of Marine and Antarctic Science include:

Having both practical skills and academic knowledge can widen your experience and offer you an advantage in the job market.

Study trip modules that take students to the Southern Ocean and the country's main fisheries, aquaculture, and seafood sectors go beyond lectures, experiments, and tutorials.

contacts, job experience, and research connections with Tasmania-based organizations that oversee ocean governance and Australia's main fisheries and aquaculture sectors

access to Tasmania-based, internationally renowned marine scientific and ocean governance organizations as well as our worldwide partner organizations

Individual research-based theses, group projects that are industry-relevant, or one-year projects


By incorporating ideas and guidelines from marine and Antarctic studies, you may help both specialized and non-specialized audiences make better decisions.

Enhance professional practice in the disciplines of marine and polar research by using analytical methods and research supported by evidence.

Applying the scientific process, evaluate research and scientific findings from lab and field experiments.
