how to apply online or in person

The safest and quickest way to apply for a full time qualification is to apply online.

Applications for full-time courses can also be submitted by post or in person at any Central Regional TAFE campus.

TAFE Admissions handles all the full time applications for TAFE colleges for local students; including citizens, permanent residents and some temporary residents (for information regarding which temporary residents can apply as a local student please contact TAFE Admissions).

Online applications are made at TAFE Admissions twice a year. We regularly update our website with notifications about when TAFE Admission applications are open (usually May and September each year).

Contact your local campus if you are unsure if your selected course will be offered through the TAFE Admissions process, or if you need more information or assistance to complete your application.
