Consider TAFE SA as your Pathway to University

Studying at TAFE SA could provide you with a pathway into university. TAFE SA offers numerous dual offer courses in partnership with South Australian universities.

TAFE SA graduates can also take advantage of TAFE SA to Uni credit transfer arrangements which can shorten the time it takes to complete a university degree or lighten the study load.

Save Time, Save Money

What's more, because your completed content is recognised, you don't have to repeat the same content at university - saving you not only time, but money.

Dual Offer Courses

With dual offer courses, you are accepted into both a TAFE SA diploma, advanced diploma or associate degree 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'll also 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

Credit transfer recognises the parts of a TAFE SA qualification that are equivalent in content and level to parts of some university programs.

To claim credit, you must formally apply to the university in accordance with their processes and you may need to show evidence of your previous studies, such as a qualification parchment.

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