Program Description

Program Overview

Spend a semester in the Outback at one of Australia's oldest universities! Semester exchange programs allow students the opportunity earn USF college credit from a diverse set of subject abroad, while still paying an equivalent to USF cost. Students are enrolled abroad and take classes, live, and socialize with local British and other international students, gaining a truly enriching experience and in-depth cultural immersion for one to two semesters.

Exchange programs are the most competitive and students are encouraged to begin the application process early to better focus on their personal statement and gather the needed recommendations.


Tasmania is a stunningly beautiful island of majestic mountains, lush temperate rainforests, wild river rapids, rolling forested hills and white sandy surf beaches. And it is all within less than an hour's drive in any direction. Add to that natural environment two vibrant cities with a wide range of cafés, restaurants, pubs, theatres, cinemas, shopping centers and open-air markets and the best of both worlds can be found all in one place. Outdoor sports are understandably popular in Tasmania, and students explore the island by hiking, biking, and riding in cars and buses. Over one third of the island is National Park and visitors will be able to see wildlife unlike any other on earth.

Hobart is the capital and largest city in Tasmania, yet it is free from overcrowding, traffic congestion, serious pollution and major crime. Situated close to the mouth of the Derwent River and nestled in the foothills of Mount Wellington, it seems that nearly every home, office and classroom has a magnificent view. On Saturdays, open air flea markets offer bargains on almost everything from gifts to food to coffee with friends.
