TAFE SA Degrees
TAFE SA has offered higher education courses in specialised areas since 1997. We are a registered Higher Education Provider with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) HEP Code: PRV14002.
TAFE SA’s applied learning approach and smaller class sizes offer a more facilitated higher education learning environment and provide additional interaction with your fellow students and lecturers.
TAFE SA’s associate degrees are designed to provide guaranteed entry and credit into a university qualification while preparing you for a paraprofessional job role. You can apply for both the TAFE SA and university components at the same time through a higher education Dual Offer.
Students may be eligible for FEE-HELP to assist in deferring study costs.

Higher Education Dual Offers
Many of TAFE SA’s higher education qualifications are available as a Dual Offer with a university. You are guaranteed admission and credit into the university degree upon successful completion of the TAFE SA qualification with the benefit of applying only once for both qualifications.
Dual Award Partnership Degrees
TAFE SA and Flinders University have joined qualifications to provide you with a TAFE SA and a Flinders University qualification within the time taken to study a single degree. Students benefit from combining applied and theoretical knowledge with practical skills and access to the resources of both organisations.
Partnership degrees are typically delivered from a TAFE SA campus, meaning you don’t have to change locations to benefit from the mix of different study components. Some topics may provide an option of going to the university campus if you prefer. Please contact Flinders University for information about which topics are available at the Flinders University Bedford Park campus.
TAFE SA will guide you through enrolment for the TAFE SA component and Flinders University will guide you through enrolment for the Flinders University component.
Students who are eligible to defer their fees through VET Student Loans and HECS-HELP, must apply for both schemes to defer TAFE SA and Flinders University fees.
On completion of the diploma/advanced diploma component of your study (typically in 2nd or 3rd year), you can apply for the TAFE SA parchment. Once the degree is completed Flinders University will confer the award to you.
Collaboratively Delivered Degrees
TAFE SA collaborates with universities to deliver components of some degrees. This approach combines the TAFE SA and university learning experience. Apply through the university for:
- Bachelor of Media, The University of Adelaide, five media production majors relating to film, TV and game art
