University of Tasmania
It has two main campuses - the Hobart campus, located in Sandy Bay, an inner suburb; and the Launceston campus, located in Newnham . The University also has a small North-west campus, located in Burnie, which allows students from that part of the state to complete the first year of certain courses without moving away from home.
The university is organised into six faculties:
- Faculty of Arts
- Faculty of Commerce
- Faculty of Education
- Faculty of Health Science
- Faculty of Law
- Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology
The university is noted for being one of the oldest in Australia and has undergone a fairly steady increase in student population since its reorganisation in 1991.
The current vice-chancellor is Professor Daryl Le Grew , who recently made news by announcing that the University of Tasmania would not increase HECS (Higher Education Contribution Scheme) fees for the 2005 academic year.
In Hobart, student life is largely co-ordinated by the Tasmania University Union or TUU. The Student Association (SA) is the equivalent body on the Northern Campuses. The President of the TUU and the President of the SA both sit on the University Council, which is the governing body of the University of Tasmania. In 2006, the reach of both organisations may be diminished with Voluntary Student Unionism.
