Opportunities for work
Tasmania has one of the highest employment rates in Australia, because of its strong economy, and most of our students find part-time employment with good rates of pay. In 2009, 146 international students were sponsored by the Tasmanian Government for permanent residency to fill job vacancies in the state. This number is expected to grow considerably after the changes to Graduate Skilled Migration, in order to meet the states’ need for qualified and skilled people.
Our International Student Advisers report that a student can live well in Tasmania for A$14,000 per year, or about A$1100 per month. This is not the case in other parts of Australia, where it can cost up to A$24-26,000 per year, or A$2000 per month. Some of the larger cities have pressure on housing from the large number of international students and emigrants that arrive each year. This again is not the case in Tasmania and we have always been successful in finding good quality accommodation for our students at reasonable prices.
Tasmania is well known for its eco‐tourism choices, Gourmet Traveller mentioned the Tasmanian Bay of Fires walk, a guided walk through stunning pristine beaches and conservation areas where walkers pass through aboriginal middens before arriving at eco‐sensitive Bay of Fires Lodge.
