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.
