Do training for further study

Help & advice

TAFE and training courses are a great way to get a job or new skills. They can also lead to doing further study and getting more qualifications. Doing this could advance your career and lead to more job opportunities.

Recognition of past study

If you have an accredited qualification, or have completed units of competency from an accredited course, you could be eligible for a credit transfer or recognition of prior learning (RPL) to do more study.

Some TAFEs and registered training providers have entry arrangements for students who have done pre-accredited training courses.

Check if your study counts towards a new course

Use the Skills Checker to check if your past study and training are likely to count towards a new course.


Get into university

As well as recognising past learning, some TAFE and training providers have formal partnerships with universities to allow entry into some Degree courses.

This means that if you have an accredited TAFE or training qualification, such as a Diploma, your provider may have an agreed arrangement with a university that means you can get into a particular Degree course.

Check with the training provider to find out if they have partnerships with universities for any specific courses. Check with the university to learn more about their course entry requirements.

Where to get help

If you're thinking about doing training to get into a higher qualification, either at university or TAFE, you can get more information and help by:

  • visiting a Skills and Jobs Centre – they can give you information on recognition for past study, as well as any arrangements with universities
  • asking the training provider about further study opportunities before you enrol in a training course
  • visiting TAFE, other training provider and university websites to understand entry requirements, pathways, and recognition for past learning for particular courses.
