  • "All positive and great buzz in the air." - Yr 12 student.

  • "Many felt they now had a better understanding of the VTAC process and how they can access information." - Careers Adviser.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who manages TIS?

    TIS has operated in Victoria since 1977 and its members work closely with the state's careers practitioners to promote further education as an option for secondary students when they leave school. There is also a TIS executive, which is made up of 6 members from the general committee and includes the president, secretary and treasurer. Overseeing the running of TIS is the Management committee, which is made up of the Marketing/Student Recruitment managers from each university.

  • WHAT DO STUDENTS BRING TO A TIS EVENT?

    Students should come prepared to take some notes about the presentation as well as have some thought about which institutions they would like to visit and perhaps any specific questions they would like to ask. This is a great opportunity for students to get prepared for the different courses they are looking to apply for and research what they may need to undertake regarding application.
