Hobart College

Hobart College and its spacious campus is located in the popular suburb of Mount Nelson, surrounded by greenery and overlooking Mount Wellington. Below, Sandy Bay offers beautiful beaches and marinas. The centre of Hobart is only five kilometres away and is very well connected by public transport.

Hobart College is a pure senior high school for Years 11 and 12 and is renowned for excellence in academic achievement and has close links with the neighbouring University of Tasmania. Year 12 students have the opportunity to participate in the UTAS Links Home Group Program.

The school has excellent facilities, including a 6-star learning centre for sustainability and state-of-the-art mathematics and science facilities.

There are many other cultural and social activities in which to participate; for example, the Student Leadership Group, Students Against Racism, environmental groups, the annual music production, sports teams, the annual ski trip, debates, social action groups and the creative and performing arts.

The relationship between teachers and students at Hobart College is exceptionally good. The teachers see it as a challenge to help all students achieve the goals they have set and are very helpful.

Hobart College has the most extensive and longest running international programme in Tasmania (since 1988) and sees itself as a multicultural school. International students are warmly welcomed and fully integrated into the classes. For the Internationals there is even a separate centre in the school. The Hobart College is generally known for being a very friendly and lively campus.

On request, the school will arrange accommodation with host families with horses if desired.
