 GOOD NEWS –Tasmanian International Scholarships (TIS)

The University of Tasmania has been providing generous scholarships to international students for over a decade.

Our largest scholarship program is the Tasmanian International Scholarship (TIS) that provides commencing international students with a 25% reduction in registered tuition fees for the duration of their course (provided satisfactory grades are maintained).

TIS is available for most undergraduate and postgraduate coursework degrees offered by the University of Tasmania and is also available for the Foundation Studies Program.

To qualify for the TIS, Form 5 (SPM) students would now require 3 ‘B+’ grades in their final SPM. This would be the same requirement for students with IGCSE, SM2 or 
GCE O-Levels. This applies to academic subjects only. This year, almost all our Malaysian students in our FSP gained the Tasmanian International Scholarship into their degrees.

Form 5 SPM students will  only receive a ‘conditional TIS’ when they achieve the above minimum in their trial/forecast results. 
The TIS will only be awarded when their parents submit their final SPM results in March, after the commencement of the Foundation Studies Program. We will backdate the TIS to next semester’s fees. This should not affect IGCSE, GEC O-Level or SM2 students as they receive their final results before the end of the year, or Singapore O-level students who receive their final O-level results in January. 

Beating the fee change

Students who apply before by 15 October 2015, accept before 31 October 2015 and commence in 2016 will beat the fee change by being granted a lower fee as per the previous tuition fee namely the 2015 published course fee plus an indexed 3.5%.

This lower fee rate also applies to those students with a packaged course who accept their offers by 15 October 2015. This includes students offered degrees packaged with ELC students offered packaged graduate certificate/graduate diploma/masters courses, providing they do not defer their course at any stage prior to or during their course.
