  • Do I apply through Self Service or through SATAC?

    Around half of TAFE SA students apply through the South Australian Tertiary Admissions Centre (SATAC), which also administers entrance to South Australian Universities. Most school leavers looking at either University or TAFE SA Award Courses will need to make their application through SATAC and wait to receive notification on what offers have been made to them.

    If you're accepted into a TAFE SA course, once you have accepted your offer, you will receive a letter from TAFE SA instructing you to log in to MyTAFE SA.

    If you're not applying through SATAC, click on the “New TAFE SA Admissions” link, create a temporary ID and PIN and work your way through the application process. 
  • I'm not applying through SATAC. How do I know what type of student I am?

    When applying, you may be asked to select a student type before you choose your course. For international students or short course and general interest applicants, this choice should be straightforward. Some other student types are still required to apply for their course directly at a TAFE SA campus.

    However, if you're not sure which type of student you are, call 1800 882 661 or contact us.
  • Where do I find Centrelink proof of enrolment documentation?

    If you are receiving a Centrelink benefit to study, you will require a proof of enrolment.

    Login to Self Service, ensuring you are connected to a printer, to print the documents required for proof of enrolment.

    You will need to print both the Student Detail Schedule and Registration Status.

    These printouts can be submitted following the instructions from Centrelink.
