Australian Maritime College (AMC) at the University of Tasmania - Australia’s national institute for maritime and maritime-related education, training and research. AMC is one of the seven founding members of the International Association of Maritime Universities (IAMU), which represents five continents.

AMC is globally recognised as being a centre for excellence. AMC has multi-million dollar suite of specialist teaching, learning and research facilities, acclaimed internationally and utilised by government bodies and maritime related businesses world-wide. In addition, AMC has professionally experienced teaching and research staff having extremely strong industry links.

Located on the banks of the beautiful Tamar River in Australia’s picturesque island state of Tasmania, AMC has two main campuses. The Newnham site is in Launceston: a vibrant regional city known for its stunning architecture, beautiful natural setting and Mediterranean climate, along with many cultural activities and sporting events. The beach, snowfields, wilderness (and the mainland) are less than an hour away. AMC’s second campus, home to Australian coastal seafaring students and AMC’s impressive fleet of training and research vessels, is located at Beauty Point.

Students are provided with flexible course options, with opportunities for full-time. Whether it’s captaining a vessel, safeguarding marine environments, designing advanced ocean engineering structures, farming seafood or keeping the world’s goods moving; AMC offers a wide range of courses, including vocational certificates at many levels, bachelor degrees and diplomas; as well as postgraduate certificates and degrees, including doctorates.  AMC class sizes are small - meaning students and teaching staff work closely together (often knowing each other by first names) and AMC campuses offers a range of student accommodation options.

With a high employment rate, our highly skilled graduates are in demand world-wide, with our alumni spread across 56 countries: indicating that AMC really can be ‘Your Ticket to the World’.   The growing maritime, marine and offshore sectors are an exciting and strategic area of growth for AMC at the University of Tasmania.
