I haven’t graduated from my Uni degree but want to come to TAFE SA

Credit is based on the subjects you have successfully completed even if you haven’t completed the whole degree. Our educational program specialists will discuss credit or recognition options once you have been offered a place in a TAFE SA award course.

Can I get credit for the entire TAFE SA course?

Due to the vocational nature of TAFE SA courses, a degree may not equate to an entire TAFE SA qualification. However, if you have work experience in the field, you may be able to claim skills recognition or RPL for the remaining units. This will be assessed once you have been offered a place in the TAFE SA course.
