Pathways to University

You might think you have to follow a certain path to study at university, but there is another way.

TAFE SA offers a range of dual offer courses in partnership with South Australian public universities.

TAFE SA Pathway to University

With dual offer courses, you are accepted into both a TAFE SA qualification and a connected university program. This means that once you complete your TAFE SA course successfully, you have guaranteed entry – with credit – into university.

Studying a dual offer course is a great way to set yourself apart from other graduates.

You will benefit from TAFE SA’s vocational experience and insights, as well as graduating with two qualifications instead of one.

TAFE SA to Uni Credit Transfer

TAFE SA has many credit transfer agreements with universities for TAFE SA graduates. Gaining university credit for the related study you have undertaken at TAFE SA can reduce the time and fees usually required to complete a Bachelor degree.

To claim credit, you must formally apply to the university in accordance with their processes.

Being eligible for credit does not guarantee that you will be offered a place in a university program. Credit will normally be granted after you have been offered a place.

Pathways to TAFE SA

You can use your previous study at a university or other registered tertiary education provider to gain credit or recognition towards a TAFE SA award course.

You can access the formal credit agreements or you may request to have previously gained knowledge, skills and experience assessed on a case-by-case basis through a recognition of prior learning process.
