Casual job opportunities
Over the past five years, the Tasmanian economy has grown steadily and there are now more opportunities
for international students to find casual job opportunities, especially seasonal work in the tourism and
agricultural sectors (for example, fruit picking). At the University of Tasmania, we encourage students to
focus on their studies but recognise that having the opportunity to work in Australia can help you adapt
to a new culture, improve your English and provide you with real life work experience to assist you when
looking for a permanent job upon graduation.

     can enrol in the UTASAccess language course at the
     English Language Centre (see page 16). The length of study
     will be determined by your level of English at enrolment
     and the time taken to attain success at Level 5 of the
     UTASAccess course.
     For example, if you have IELTS 5.0 and no band less than
     4.5 you will be placed in Level 4 and you can enter the
     FSP with a minimum of ten weeks’ study if you achieve the
     required results at Level 5. However, be prepared to take
     further modules at the same level if you aren’t successful.
     If you successfully complete the UTASAccess program
     at Level 5 you can enter the FSP directly with no further
     IELTS testing required.
