If you have successfully completed a TAFE or VET qualification you may be able to count that towards studying with us.

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 University of Adelaide degree:

See the TAFE/VET Credit Pathways page for more specific details.

More information, including a Credit Calculator can also be found on the TAFE SA Credit Pathways Link to external website page.

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.

And finally, don't forget you will still need to apply through SATAC Link to external website!
