Have you completed a TAFE or VET qualification at a certificate IV or higher? Your completed qualification can gain you entry to many of our degrees.

For students that have studied at either TAFE SA or other Registered Training Organisations (RTOs), most Certificate IV Courses (including former Advanced Certificates or equivalent) meet the minimum entry requirements for a wide range of our undergraduate degrees. In some instances a successfully completed Diploma or Advanced Diploma will be required to meet the minimum entry requirements.

Please note: prerequisites (or their equivalents) must also be met. In some cases a completed TAFE/VET qualification will cover the equivalent content to a prescribed prerequisite. You are advised to contact us to seek further advice prior to applying.

TAFE SA Credit Pathways

For students that have studied at TAFE SA there are four ways in which your qualifications could count towards a APSB degree:

All of our five faculties grant credit (also known as Recognised Prior Learning (RPL) or ‘advanced standing') for previous studies depending on the relevance to your degree. Once you have gained entry to a degree you will be able to apply for credit. ‘Unspecified Credit’ is granted in a number of our degrees, for Certificate IV to Advanced Diploma level qualifications regardless of the study area.

See the Credit Calculator for more specific details on types of credit and how to calculate credit.

More information, including credit amounts for specific courses, can also be found on the TAFE SA Credit Pathways page.
