Tasmanian International Scholarship (TIS)


Scholarship opportunities for all commencing international students 

The Tasmanian International Scholarship (TIS) 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 Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery, 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 UTAS.


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


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