Pathways to University

If your goal is to achieve a bachelor degree in your chosen field of study, TAFE SA offers two different types of pathway to university - a University Packaged Program or Credit Transfer.

A University Packaged Program allows you to select the course and the university you wish to study at, before commencing your studies at TAFE SA.

Credit Transfer gives you the opportunity to select your university course on completion of your TAFE SA studies.

With additional Bachelor programs becoming available, international students can choose to stay at TAFE SA for qualifications such as the Bachelor of Hospitality Management.

University Packaged Offers

TAFE SA has partnered with the University of South Australia, the University of Adelaide and Flinders University to offer packaged offers in a variety of fields.

This allows students to accept a joint packaged offer with a local South Australian university, and upon successful completion of a TAFE SA qualification, the student is eligible for a guaranteed entry into a nominated University Degree Program.

The benefits of a Packaged University Offer include:

  • Students will be able to apply for a single visa for the entire duration of both programs.
  • Guaranteed entry into selected university programs*
  • Guaranteed credits may shorten the duration of qualifications and reduce tuition fees over the total duration of study program **
  • Graduate with a dual qualification from both TAFE SA and a university (for example Advanced Diploma/Bachelor Degree)
  • Graduate with a competitive mix of practical and theoretical skills

Application process

Please refer to the Guidelines on Genuine Student, Temporary Entrant, Student Visa Living Costs and Proof of Funds for important information regarding GTE.

Students seeking a packaged offer may be required to satisfy additional conditions (as outlined in the Letter of Offer). Upon acceptance* of the offered place/s students will receive a COE for the duration of the TAFE SA and University programs. 

Upon receipt of the Confirmation of Enrolments (COEs), international students can apply for a student visa for the total duration of both programs. 

International students on a packaged visa are committed to study the TAFE SA qualification and the partner University course. Students should not accept their Offer if they intend to change their chosen course or transfer to another institution.

*Some packages are offered on a quota basis. Until acceptance and payment has been received so that a COE can be issued, a place in the relevant courses cannot be guaranteed. Therefore, it is advisable to accept as soon as possible.
