Ready to take the next step?  

The application process varies depending on the course you have selected and the campus you would like to attend. Select one of the options below:

2021 - Full-time courses

Many popular full time courses are considered competitive or in-demand - meaning you will need to apply ahead to secure your place. Applications are made through TAFE Admissions Online (a system used by all TAFE's in WA to process student applications for in-demand courses). 

However if you have missed a date still express your interest in the course. If it has commenced or has no available positions our students services team will assist in finding a suitable option for you. 

Some full-time face-to-face courses don't require you to apply through TAFE Admissions Online and accept enrolments all year round via our student application portal (see more information on this page) or by visiting a campus. The course page on the website will let you know if this is case or you can contact your local campus on 1800 672 700 for more information about enrolling in the course. 

Applications for competitive courses for Semester 1, 2021 open Monday 14 September. Please note the important dates for TAFE Admissions below, students may still express an interest in a course following the closing date.
