Articulation (credit transfer)
TAFE NSW has articulation (credit transfer) agreements with a number of Australian universities. This means your previous studies at TAFE NSW may be recognised by these universities.
In most study areas, TAFE NSW Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas help you gain entry to university and give you between one year and two years credit towards a degree. However, unlike TAFE NSW to University pathway programs these credit transfer agreements don't automatically guarantee you a place at the university.
