Don't have the qualifications you need to get into your dream course?
Realised you're not on the course you're meant to be? Found gaps in
your university education? Never fear - bridging courses can get you
back on the right track.
With a wide range of bridging courses designed to partner university
degrees, TAFE NSW makes it
easy to work towards a brighter future.
How bridging courses work
A bridging course allows you to study a specific subject that may not
be available throughout your university. By completing the course, you
are awarded credit, which can then be transferred to your university
record and count towards your overall degree. A large number of NSW
universities are already geared towards accepting credit transfers
and even if they aren't, you can approach them and ask if they'd
consider making an exception for you.
How to choose a bridging course
To take advantage of all the benefits bridging courses have to offer,
all you need to do is choose courses that are compatible with your
degree and check the credit transfer requirements. TAFE works with
higher education authorities and universities throughout NSW, making
sure you have plenty of choice when it comes to finding your ideal partnership.
Additional courses after your degree
If you've already finished your degree but are worried there are
still some gaps in your knowledge, a TAFE course could be just what
you need to get your skills up to scratch. Supplement your university
education with courses designed to boost your employability and expand
your skill set. Discover bridging courses on the University
