Australia is trying to boost its regional population by making it easier to migrate to its more remote locations. Tasmania is one of these regions. The points required to acquire a Work Visa are lower than for more well-known states like New South Wales and Victoria but similar to Northern Territory.
Tasmania as known as “Apple Isle” boasts educational institutions such as the University of Tasmania (UTAS) and several other providers. The education providers offer a variety of disciplines to study including nursing, accounting, commercial cookery, engineering, community services, and many more.
Tasmania is renowned for its largely untouched forests and wealth of natural must-see landmarks such as the Bay of Fires, Cataract Gorge, Hastings Caves, and the Nut – a sheer-sided bluff that is all that remains of an ancient volcano. If you enjoy the outdoor life then studying in Tasmania – or a more long-term engagement with the island – will afford you a wealth of opportunities.
Mustafa Ali, is the Territory Manager for Red Bull in Launceston, Tasmania’s second-largest city. He studied at the main campus of UTAS (located in the state capital, Hobart) and reports that he enjoyed living and working there as well. During his studies, he worked a succession of casual jobs as a brand ambassador for the likes of Microsoft, Sony, and Samsung. In this way, he gained valuable local experience even as he built up his skills and knowledge from his studies. And it paid off once he finished his degree. His current employer was looking for a local manager and Mustafa successfully applied.
In terms of employment opportunities, all the big brands/companies are operating in the Apple Isle and are always on the lookout for people who have good skills and experience.
