Tasmanian International Scholarship (TIS)
The Tasmanian International Scholarship (TIS) provides international students who are commencing their degree program with a 25% reduction in their registered tuition fees for the duration of their course (provided satisfactory grades are maintained).
UTAS Foundation Studies graduates will be assessed for eligibility to receive the TIS based on academic achievement in their Foundation Studies final results.
Foundation Studies graduates who are not successful in being awarded a TIS for their degree studies will still be entitled to the FSP to Degree 10% Scholarship (excl Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degree).
Successful TIS recipients will be notified by email after their second semester results are released (refer Key University Dates). TIS recipients who are offered any other tuition fee scholarship cannot retain more than one tuition fee scholarship; the scholarship with the highest value would be the recommended scholarship to accept.
Please note that this scholarship is only available to commencing degree program students.
Examination results are assessed at the end of the first semester by the Scholarships Selection Committee to determine ongoing eligibility. Recipients who do not meet ongoing eligibility will be notified by email.
TIS recipients will be reassessed for ongoing eligibility in their chosen degree based on the terms and conditions specified in their Scholarship Offer, applicable to the degree in which they are enrolled.
Please note that international students who become a citizen of Australia, Permanent Resident or change from a student visa to a Protection Visa or Permanent Humanitarian Visa, and who have been awarded the Tasmanian International Scholarship (TIS) or any other international tuition fee scholarship or bursary, will become ineligible to retain the award from commencement of their next enrolment period onwards.
FSP graduates do not need to submit a separate application for the degree TIS, as eligibility will be assessed automatically upon successful completion of their Foundation Studies Program.
