University to TAFE

Did you know that more than 50,000 university graduates enrol at TAFE NSW each year? Many choose TAFE NSW because the practical skills we offer complement their university qualifications.

Our range of qualifications from Certificate to Graduate Diploma level or short professional-development courses can improve your job prospects, help you change careers, or get you promoted.

We give you credit for what you know

We have arrangements with a number of universities and higher education providers in NSW and interstate. They can provide you with credit so that you don't need to repeat the units of study you have successfully completed which directly match units of competency in our courses.

You can ask at the TAFE NSW Institute where you intend to enrol about possible credit for what you've already studied at university.

Where your previous learning at university is not covered by a formal credit arrangement, you may be able to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL).


If you enrol for some higher qualifications (Diploma or above), you may be eligible for a Commonwealth  VET Student Loan to cover the cost of some or all of your student fees.
