So you've decided the course you were studying wasn't your cup of
tea. It's okay to change your mind, it happens. After all, you should
be happy, or at least enjoy what you're doing. If Mark Zuckerberg can
drop out of his course and still be successful, then so can you!
Figuring out which course will actually help you achieve your career
goals. If you don't know right now, that's fine. TAFE NSW is here to
help and give you some inspo.
Starting a new course again doesn't have to be a headache. You may
not need to start from scratch. With a TAFE NSW degree you may be
eligible for exemption from some subjects if you've completed studies
in a similar field or have relevant industry experience.
We've listed a sample of our degree courses below to get the ideas flowing.
