Pathways to university

TAFE qualifications can be used as a stepping stone to university. If you have received a qualification from TAFE you may meet the entry requirements for many university courses.

As part of TAFE Queensland, TAFE Queensland North has established links (called articulation agreements) with many universities enabling graduating diploma and advanced diploma students credit toward their degree qualification. This provides a considerable saving to the student in both time and money.

TAFE diplomas and advanced diplomas

These qualifications are widely respected by employers, providing high level, practical managerial employment skills. A TAFE diploma or advanced diploma may allow you to articulate or gain credit towards further study at university. They can also assist with upgrading skills or re-entry to the workforce at a more qualified level. Study time is usually the equivalent of 1 to 2 years full time.

TAFE Queensland is committed to pursuing its ongoing negotiations with Australian universities to continuously improve credit transfer arrangements on your behalf.
