The aim of this study was to see whether international students felt safe to live in
Hobart, Tasmania. The hypothesis of this study was that some of the international students
have obtained a bad impression about their safety and security while they live in Hobart,
Tasmania. In order to research this, the study used a survey questionnaire. The survey
questionnaire allowed international students to make any comments or give any impressions
about their safety and security. The survey questionnaire has been put up on the Survey
Monkey website. It does not identify who answered the survey questions. The survey
questionnaire was divided into four parts. The four parts of this study were general
information, personal safety and security issues, perceptions of safety, and making things
safer. The purpose of the survey questionnaire was given broad ideas about how safe the
international students. This dissertation provides a review on background literature about the
problem and reports the research on the survey. This showed that international students in
Hobart are concerned about the issue. The last chapter makes some recommendations.
