Start your studies at TAFE

International Student Graudates at TAFE

Many students choose to start their studies at a Western Australian TAFE college, apply for university entrance towards the end of their Diploma/Advanced Diploma studies and then gain credit for the work they have done.

On completion of TAFE and university you will have two qualifications that are attractive to employers and that will give you a competitive edge in the global job market.

The advantages of starting your studies at TAFE include:

  • An industry focused pathway to further study if you do not meet university entry requirements
  • Smaller class sizes with extra English and academic support
  • You will gain practical, employment focused skills that will complement your degree
  • May reduce your study load, course duration and fees when you enrol into your university degree
