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
In addition to this, credit transfer is available to ensure that your TAFE SA studies are recognised as being equivalent in content and level to parts of other education programs, including university degrees.
Save on your Degree
Studying at TAFE SA is a smart choice that can save you money. Our tuition fees are very competitive. Your TAFE SA qualification also provides credit towards your university degree, so you can complete your degree in less time and save money.
Example of Savings
Jackson wants to complete a Bachelor of Engineering at university. This will cost him around $34 400 (AUD) for each year of the four year degree, or around $137 600 (AUD) overall.
Jackson has chosen to study the Associate Degree in Electrical Engineering (092137K - CRS1400352) at TAFE SA which costs around $17 500 (AUD) a year or around $35 000 (AUD) for the two year course.
When Jackson completes his TAFE SA study, he will gain two years credit to go on to complete his Bachelor degree at university in just two years.
At the end of the four years, Jackson will have two qualifications, the Associate Degree in Electronic Engineering and the related Bachelor of Engineering at one of Adelaide's finest universities.
