Selecting the right course

When it comes to deciding what course you want to study, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. What are your strengths?
  2. What do you enjoy?
  3. What are your interests outside of school?
  4. What what you consider your personality type to be: i.e. social, realistic, investigative, artistic, enterprising or conventional?
  5. Do you have a specific career in mind: i.e. accountant, lawyer, engineer, teacher, artist, actor?

We've got a range of tools you can use to narrow down courses for TISC preferences:

  • You can search our courses by careers
  • Futures, our guide of Undergraduate courses, will give you an overview of courses and disciplines we offer
  • Our Course Finder is a quick reference for you to see what courses have admission requirements/prerequisites
  • The course information on this site is more comprehensive - you can see the course structure and units within the course plus additional information we couldn't fit in Futures!
  • If you're interested in a particular study area (i.e. Communications & Arts, Law & Justice or Business), we have compiled all you need to know about the area, courses and specialist facilities available!

Get to know your discipline

If you already have an idea of what you want to study or what careers you want to target, we suggest you attend the Information Evening for that discipline.

Most of our discipline areas run an information evening each semester, or each year, where staff who teach in that discipline will discuss their course structures, career outcomes and what the course involves.

For upcoming events and more information, see our Events page.

Get to know your options

We run prospective student information evenings throughout the year. These evenings will give you all the information they need to make an informed choice about studying, admission, entry pathway options, subject selection and much more.

For more information and to register for upcoming events, see our Events page.
