Application checklist

Once you've chosen your course, there are a few things you can do to ensure your application sails through quickly and easily.

Read the important information

At the bottom of each course information page you will find a section called Important information. Please read this carefully before applying to make sure you understand all the requirements before and during your studies. The important information will outline any previous experience or knowledge you might need, as well as resources you require, registrations you might need to have or complete, and details about vocational or work placements.

Entry requirements

Please check you meet the course entry requirements prior to applying. You can find details of the course entry requirements under Important information on the course information page.

Other student loan applications

Terms and conditions 

Applying for a course does not guarantee you a place in that course. Your place is only guaranteed once you have accepted your offer for a place in that course and enrol into units. Enrolling means that you are committing yourself to study, and to paying the associated fees. 

The tuition fees and applicable charges are required to be paid at enrolment or by scheduled instalment dates either by yourself, a nominated third party (e.g. your employer), or as identified within a contract for delivery of TAFE Queensland training. Students studying approved VET courses at diploma level or above may be eligible to apply for a  VET Student Loan. Students studying Higher Education courses may be eligible to apply for FEE-HELP or HECS-HELP depending on your course of study.

Get your paperwork ready

When you apply, you will need to provide a number of documents to prove you are eligible for the course you want to study. Check that you've gathered the required eligibility documents, and make sure you have read the entry requirements and selection criteria for your course as you may need to provide additional paperwork specific to your chosen course.

Unique student identifier (USI)

If you are a new or continuing student undertaking nationally recognised training you need to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI) in order to receive your qualification or statement of attainment. You can quickly and easily create a USI or search for your existing USI online. You will need to supply your USI when you apply to study with us.   

Please note: If you are studying a non-accredited course (such as a short course) or a higher education course you do not need to have a USI to apply.
