Transfering your previous study credits
In South Australia, TAFE SA and the universities have worked together to establish formal agreements that recognise components of TAFE courses as being equivalent to components of university courses. These credit transfer agreements can make it easier for TAFE students to move into degree courses. They also allow credit to be granted for studies undertaken at TAFE, which can save time taken to complete related degrees.
External study opportunities
External study is supported with materials, resources and tutor contact. In some cases you may be required to attend an agreed location for assessment purposes.
