TAFE – Technical and Further Education
All courses available for international students are nationally recognized by AQF (Australian Qualification Framework).
How can I get in?
TAFE requires providing Academic IELTS with the minimum of a 5.5 score depending on the chosen study course. Alternatively, for some courses you might be able to sit down for a placement test designed by TAFE or you use a different type of English certificate approved by TAFE.
TAFE only provides the exact timetable on the orientation days (a week prior the commencement date). Generally, you need to count on 3-4 weekdays of studies.
