Welcome to the exciting world of Children’s University. It’s fun!

Children’s University Tasmania provides you with exciting free range learning activities outside your day to day school work, whether that be before school, lunch time, after school, in the school holidays etc. The best part about Children’s University Tasmania is that it’s voluntary, so you get to choose what activities you would like to do, where, when and how you would like to do them. The things you learn about will always be able to be connected to something that you could study at a university, the schools for grown-ups.

Validated Children’s University Learning Destinations (the fun places you go to do cool things) all have a Children’s University Learning Destination sticker in the window. You should go in there and participate in the activity, take your Passport to Learning with you and get a stamp for the time you spent learning. The more activities you do, the more hours and stamps you will get in your Passport to Learning, and the closer you will be to graduating.

Once you have collected enough hours you will graduate in an iconic location closest to your nearest Children’s University Tasmania Campus where you will be presented with your certificate at a special ceremony, all dressed up in a cap and gown, just like the older university students.

Some schools in Tasmania are already involved and others will be joining Children’s University Tasmania over the next few months and years.
