Tash Talks: University Life

Life is all about experiences, and one of the most seminal experiences of my life was definitely going to University.

Recently the University of Tasmania contacted me to share my experiences at Uni and how they helped shape my career.

Deciding which Uni to go to can be pretty harrowing when you are leaving school, or even after a bachelor degree when you are looking at Masters or Post Graduate courses. It’s a lot of money, unless you score a scholarship, and there are so many courses to choose from.

One of the best things I did was go to the Careers and University fairs that are often held year to year, so you can get a feel for how the University is, what the culture is like, what they offer.

For me, Uni was not just about the courses but the culture. You are spending three to five years usually studying so it has to be somewhere you will enjoy studying every day. I loved the feeling of being surrounded by so many people with varied interests, the fashion on campus, and the prestige.

I one hundred percent believe in the benefits of studying at Uni. That’s not to say that those who forge a career without it are any less well off, but I think it’s a great learning experience and a fantastic way to transition from being a teenager to an adult.

Here are a couple of UTAS students, Tess and Harriet, talking about their experiences in moving from interstate to study at UTAS:

UTAS has their Open Day coming up later this month, and now is the time to apply if you’re considering studying at Uni next year. I did, and I really recommend it.

    My double degree was useless and no aid in my current career but the life experience and social situations was beneficial

    I have a Bachelor Degree and a completely unrelated career, but I would never say that I wasted my time at uni. I learnt so much about life, other people and especially about myself. I wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything 🙂

    Yeah, I loved uni. The book learning was handy, but it was also about so much more, including learning how to manage myself/my time. Definitely recommend that people consider it seriously.

    I am not currently using my university training, but found that uni life taught me more than just class lessons!
