Study Centre Circular Head has a close partnership with the University of Tasmania (UTAS).  As part of its social mission, the university is committed to supporting regional Tasmanians by:

  • Developing learning pathways
  • Encouraging community learning and access to educational opportunities 
  • Prioritizing learning access and equity by better understanding our regional students

To support the students of Study Centre Circular Head, UTAS provides on-the-ground assistance in the form of a Community Learning Officer. This person is a great resource for all things UTAS and has a broad scope to assist current and potential UTAS students with a variety of university-related tasks including:

  • Finding relevant information on what to study at university
  • Navigating university systems
  • Applying for and enrolling in university courses 
  • Scholarship applications
  • Accessing student supports
  • And much more 

Your local Community Learning Officer is Vikki Iwanicki.  Vikki has spent the past four years living and working on the West Coast of Tasmania where she has assisted with the launch and ongoing operation of Study Hub West Coast.  She is very familiar with navigating complex university systems and can be a great resource for your study journey.  In addition to assisting students, Vikki also works with her fellow staff at UTAS to improve access to university for regional students by simplifying our internal systems and external communications so that the university can be a place where regional students feel supported to succeed.  

If you are studying or thinking of studying at UTAS be sure to contact Vikki.  She will help make your transition to university a smooth one.  Vikki says, “There are no silly questions.  I’m here to be a resource for you so ask me whatever questions you have and I’ll find answers for you.”

You can contact Vikki at or Mobile 0439 340 842.

General Information about UTAS courses is available at 

When she is not at work you will find Vikki out hiking the many trails across Tasmania or making bread in her bread machine (she is mildly addicted to this).  She also loves a good local market and enjoys both making and receiving home made jams and chutneys.
