TAFE/RTO graduate

Your TAFE or registered training organisation (RTO) qualification may be all you need to undertake a degree at UniSA. It could be easier than you think to take your career to the next level.

A Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma from TAFE will make students eligible to apply for entry into many UniSA programs. If the student gains a place in a program, they may also be eligible to receive credit for their previous study, reducing the time it takes to complete their degree.

You can see an instant snapshot of how your qualifications count towards your program by using our credit assessor. If your award is not listed in the credit assessor please contact Future Student Enquiries for advice.

Some TAFE/RTO awards may even qualify applicants for a guaranteed offer to select UniSA programs.

Note: TAFE/RTO graduates cannot use their TAFE awards to apply for the Bachelor of Laws at UniSA but may be eligible for other pathways.
