Tasmanian International Scholarship

Scholarship opportunities for all commencing international students.

The Tasmanian International Scholarship provides commencing international students with a 25% reduction in registered tuition fees for the duration of their course (provided satisfactory grades are maintained).

All international students who submit an International Student Application to study in an undergraduate degree (with the exception of the Bachelor of Medical Science and Doctor of Medicine, Bachelor of Dementia Care and AMC Seafaring courses) will be automatically assessed for the TIS Scholarship by our Admissions Team.

This scholarship is also available to international students applying for postgraduate coursework degrees (with a few course exceptions).

Applicants are automatically assessed for the Tasmanian International Scholarship at the time of submitting their International Student Application. Selection for this scholarship will be based on academic merit achieved in studies at secondary, diploma and degree level courses. Applications are assessed for all semester intakes and selection for this scholarship will be based on an applicant's highest level qualification prior to commencing their intended study program (minimum one-year duration). Please also note that qualifications and grading scales can vary significantly from country to country.

Offer letters will notify applicants if they have been successful in being awarded a scholarship, provided final results have been submitted. Successful TIS recipients will find inside their Offer details of the Scholarship terms and conditions, which they must read carefully. Please note that this scholarship is only available to commencing students. International Scholarships will not reassess current students based on their academic progress at the University of Tasmania.


25% reduction in registered tuition fees for the duration of the course.


As students are assessed automatically for the Tasmanian International Scholarship upon submission of their International Student Application, there is no need to apply separately, nor do recipients need to apply for ongoing eligibility.

Enquiries should be directed to International Scholarships.

If my Tasmanian International Scholarship eligibility has been unsuccessful, can I have my application reviewed?

Due to the high volume of applications we receive, Tasmanian International Scholarship eligibility will only be reviewed up until the university census date for the first semester of study. Refer to the University Key Dates webpage for all other semester information.

Sponsored students and those in receipt of a scholarship from their home country or country of residence will be assessed for the Tasmanian International Scholarship eligibility, with the exception of sponsored students eligible for AMC tuition fee bursaries or Australian government scholarship recipients.

TIS scholarship eligibility will be reviewed for all eligible courses. Eligibility will be based upon the cumulative grade point average for the entire study period of your highest qualification completed prior to commencement at the University of Tasmania (no less than one full year of study).

Students are recommended to refer to their conditions of acceptance in their offer letter to confirm results required to maintain their scholarship. In instances where a student has failed one or more units and is required to repeat any unit(s), he/she may be required to pay the full tuition fee for each semester thereafter.

TIS eligibility is assessed on an applicant’s highest level qualification prior to commencing their intended study program (minimum one year duration).

As you have been issued with an offer based on your ‘Forecast’ results it is important that you or your agent representative sends certified copies of your ‘Final’ results to the Scholarships and Prizes office, no later than census date for your first semester of study.

Students who do not provide ‘Final’ results by census date of their first semester of study will have their Tasmanian International Scholarship revoked and full tuition fees will have to be paid for the duration of their degree program.
