Advanced Standing Partner Institute Discounts

In recognition of the special relationship between the University and its formal Partner Institutes, students and graduates of the institutes listed below, who are granted advanced standing into a University of Tasmania Bachelor degree, will receive a 10% reduction on the registered tuition fees for their undergraduate studies.

Students will first be assessed for a Tasmanian International Scholarship (TIS), which provides a 25% fee reduction and is awarded on the basis of academic performance during studies with the home institute. Those students not awarded a TIS will receive the Partner Institute discount. The maximum fee waiver available to students is 25%.
