Four great reasons to study with TAFE NSW
Gain valuable experience
Our courses are recognised for their hands-on approach to skills training. Our strong connections with over 25,000 industry partners means many of our courses come with built-in internships and work placements to enhance your employability and career prospects. In some instances, you can even start earning while you’re still learning.
Prior recognition can reduce your amount of required learning and allow you to achieve your qualification faster. Get advanced entry based on previous related studies you have completed, as well as your previously gained skills or knowledge, relevant to your course. Find out more about recognition and credit transfers.
Even though we offer hundreds of courses, including certificates, diplomas and degrees, our small class sizes and personalised approach gives you greater access to a quality education, boosting your skills along the way.
