Yet this is a time that UTAS normally increases student enrolments! Why?
Because UTAS has a policy of keeping its tuition fees low – the lowest of any prestige university in Australia, and the fees are fixed once the student starts until they finish.
It’s scholarship scheme, where the cost of tuition is further reduced by 25%, is also a great attraction for international students. We now have more than 600 international students on the Tasmanian International Scholarship Scheme, and that is good news!
Tasmania’s lower cost of living is popular with parents when they are working out a budget for their children’s overseas education. They are also relieved to know that their children will be safe and have good part-time work opportunities to reduce the financial burden.
Because there is no application fee many students try UTAS to see if they can get a scholarship. If successful they will pay around half the cost of studying in Tasmania compared with other prestige universities in Australia. Even if they are not successful the cost reduction is still substantial.
So it all adds up to a wise choice. If you have a client that thinks they cannot afford to study overseas, introduce them to UTAS, they might just change their mind!
