Application Dates

Applications for competitive full-time courses open prior to each semester (see dates below).

What is a competitive course?

Competitive courses are popular courses, meaning that often more applications are received every semester than we have places for. It is important to apply for these popular courses ahead of time to secure your place. However if you have missed a date Central Regional TAFE accepts expressions of interest for studying with us all year round. If a course has commenced or has no available positions our students services team will assist in finding a suitable option for you. 

Applications for part-time, online, intensive or short courses can be taken at any time. For more information about applying for a course click here
