Most temporary visa holders are eligible to study at TAFE NSW. The enrolment process and conditions are different to those for local students and international students (on a student visa).
Your enrolment in TAFE NSW is subject to the availability of places and payment of fees. You'll also need to meet any entry requirements for your chosen course.
Most temporary visa holders pay tuition fees and the TAFE NSW fee to study at TAFE NSW. You must pay the fees that apply to your course, unless you are exempt. You are not able to obtain your course results and awards if any fees are due.
Enrolment is only accepted in courses that do not extend beyond the expiry date of your visa.
If your visa does not have an expiry date you can still enrol, but TAFE NSW is not responsible for the non-completion of a course if the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) requires you to leave Australia.
TAFE NSW verifies the residency status of students with DIAC. If there is a false claim regarding residency status, a student is liable to be excluded from TAFE NSW.
You are also required to notify the Temporary Visa Holders Officer at your college or campus if your temporary visa or visa conditions change while you are studying at TAFE NSW.
