If you are looking to study with a Western Australian University for Public Universities (Curtin, UWA, Murdoch, ECU) you will need to apply via TISC (Tertiary Institution Service Centre), an online website. For private Universities you will need to apply to them directly (Notre Dame).
Complete a TISC online application form for Public Universities (Curtin, Murdoch, ECU, and UWA) and apply directly to Private Universities (Notre Dame).
Complete your University and Course preferences. The opening and closing dates for each year are given via TISC and Notre Dame. See the TISC Calendar.
The preferences include the course you wish to study and at which university.
Preferences need to be listed in order of the course and university in which you most want to study and this then follows onto your second and then third preference….and so on.
The Universities recommend you put a bridging course, enabling course, Foundation year or preparation course as your final preference. This is a good back up plan if things do not go to plan.
See the below example of a student’s TISC preferences. Everyone applying will get six preferences in TISC. While Notre Dame gives you the chance to put in three preferences.
Preferences example 1; this student wants to study Psychology and this course is available at all the unis in Western Australia. They don’t mind which uni they study at. It’s important to check what course you would like to do and see which university it is offered at.
NOTRE DAME APPLICATION:
TISC Preference example 2; this student really wants to study at a particular university and they are flexible with options for courses. This student has chosen they do not want to apply for Notre Dame, therefore they haven’t send Notre Dame an application. They have added in one other university as part of their backup plan (University B).
The official dates for this is published via TISC. On the 28th of December 2016, WA WACE results and Universities Admission Advice Letters are given online for year 12s.
You have until the 5th of January 2017 at 11pm to change your preferences around. This is also the final closing date for you to apply. NOTE: TISC and the universities will do their best to process and consider for the main round of offers applications received up to today. However, any delays in receipt of supporting documentation may impact on this goal. Therefore, 4.30pm on the 5th of January 2017 is the Final date for you to provide documents/transcripts of results of 2016 studies for the main round of offers.
Wednesday the 18th of January 2017 is the main round offers. Applications and changing preferences opens again.
You can choose to accept, defer or wait on the offer you are given.
This will happen on Wednesday the 1st of February 2017. You can then choose to accept or defer your offer.
We recommend at any stage you be in contact and have a chat with the university you wish to study at. Similarly if you have any questions about your TISC or Notre Dame application you can chat with your year 12 teachers/coordinator, careers councillor or university advisor for your school.
