Do what feels right for right now

TAFE Queensland delivers contemporary degrees that give students the best of both worlds — the theoretical side of a university degree, with the applied-learning that makes our graduates so highly sought after. Our small class sizes, state-of-the-art facilities, and strong links with industry allow you to follow your passion and get job ready along the way.  

Diploma-to-degree pathways

Get two qualifications in the same time it usually takes to complete just one with our diploma-to-degree pathways. Take the pressure off and combine the practical training of a diploma with the theoretical knowledge of a university degree.  

With a dual award you can start working and earning in your industry sooner, putting your diploma skills into practice in industry while you complete your degree qualification. Graduate ahead of the pack with academic knowledge backed up by real-world skills.

As your diploma usually counts as a full year of credit towards a three-year university degree, you'll only have two years of your degree to go once you complete your diploma. You'll then graduate with both your diploma and your bachelor qualification.

You can choose to complete your diploma-to-degree pathway entirely through TAFE Queensland, or combine your TAFE diploma with a degree from one of our partner universities, giving you ultimate flexibility in your study journey. Learn more >
