In addition to the information given above I would like to add the following.
The courses provided are BS, MS, M.Tech, PhD, Integrated BS-MS and Integrated MS-PhD. You can also join as a project fellow (JRF/SRF), a research associate, a post-doctoral fellow (after PhD). Other than this there are also various internship programs at both UG and PG levels that one can apply for.
Other than GATE and JAM, IISc also conducts their own entrance exam for UG, PG and PhD courses.
Once you clear the cut off in the written exams, you have to face either 1 or 2 rounds of interviews (depending on course and department) before you are offered a seat.
For paid internships, you have to apply according to the format given in their website which usually includes writing about your research ideas/research proposal and area of interest.
