Web Services such as Applying Online, Change of Preference, Results, etc

Sometimes the responses on the internet are slow, which can be due to a number of factors. We ask that you be patient if delays occur.

The functionality for course searches, applying and changing preferences on the web may not perform well with some browsers.

If you are using an old browser it is suggested you upgrade it.

For most applicants it will be necessary to print out a coversheet, hence applicants should have access to a suitable printer.

All closing dates will be strictly adhered to. Times such as 11 pm on specified closing dates are as recorded on TISC's server. Click here for calendar of important dates and times

Your application is not deemed to have been completed until the application fee payment has been processed (via TISCOnline or at TISC). Once you have agreed to the declaration on the web application then you have 5* working days by which to have the payment received at TISC.

If payment is received by TISC after the 5* working days as described above then TISC may:

  • Refuse to accept your application payment or
  • Request a standard fee payment before processing your application as a result of a closing date having been passed.

If you have to submit documents/transcripts (except current year results) to TISC as part of your application, they should be received at TISC within 5 working days of making the application declaration. A coversheet should accompany the documents/transcripts submitted to TISC.

*The number of working days by which payment is received at TISC may be less than 5, close to a closing date. The coversheet will display the relevant number of working days allowed.
