“I come from a hectic city, Hong Kong, so when I got the idea to study abroad, I wanted somewhere hustle-free. Tasmania’s beautiful scenery is right on the doorstep. It is so easy to reach the summit of a mountain, lovely beaches, and hiking trails. I never get bored in Tasmania as there are so many national parks with great bushwalks and hiking routes. Connecting with nature is great!”
“I chose Tasmania as my first study abroad destination. This beautiful island has amazed me since the first day I arrived. Tasmania has refreshing lifestyle, vibrant culture, and beautiful nature. Tasmania’s cool weather suits me very much. I have met a lot of friendly people during my time here. Being around a friendly culture helps me form my confidence to live abroad by myself.”
“I moved to Launceston, Tasmania in 2021. Launceston’s relaxed lifestyle is so pleasant as I get to enjoy each moment of my day. The natural beauty and fresh atmosphere are always great for exploration in my free time. I enjoy studying at TasTAFE and hold high hopes about my employment after graduation.”
“I love Tasmania’s weather. It is a perfect place for someone who can’t deal with extreme heat. I have found people here lovely. You will find the drivers rarely beeping at each other, and a wave in the car is expected when you let others go first. Tasmania has spectacular natural views.”
“I’ve always heard about how Tasmania is a beautiful place with panoramic views. Back in 2018, I decided to visit Tasmania and see for myself, and the unforgettable trip led me in choosing Tassie! I had a gut feeling that I wanted to stay and explore. I remember it was a big decision to make back then, I am so happy that I trusted my gut – it has led me here today! ”
“I chose Tasmania as a study destination because of its high-quality living standard. This heart-shaped island has the lowest air pollution level and the cleanest air quality in the world. I feel connected and safe here. I find people very kind and hospitable. For me, Tasmania is a diversified and attractive place to work and live in the years coming.”
“The scenery in Tasmania is extraordinary. I believe everyone should at least visit Tassie once in their lifetime. Here you can enjoy the fresh air, the safety and peace, and most of all, the friendly people. In Hobart, if you meet or know someone, you are bound to come across them somewhere else. I call it “the Law of Hobart” – that shows how close-knit the community is. Tassie is also proud of its renewable energy, the unique animals, and its multiculturalism.”
“Moving from Melbourne to Hobart, Tasmania is one of my best decisions. Tasmania is one of the most beautiful states in Australia. I can breathe the cleanest air and enjoy the incredible wilderness here. Tassie’s lifestyle is affordable, adventurous, and full of opportunities for international students. I enjoy living and studying here and look forward to exploring this wonderful island.”
“One of my favourite chefs said that the best mise en place (French culinary phrase) starts at the farm. He valued the quality of ingredients as they will influence the final flavour of the dish. Tasmania has the developed agriculture, animal husbandry, and fishery. It provides fresh and rich ingredients for cooking. You can find the best fish and seafood here. With a passion for hospitality, I chose Tasmania to start chasing my dream of becoming a chef.”
