At TAFE Queensland, we pride ourselves on being for the people who don't fit the mould. We don't punish you for moving to your own beat. In fact, we'll help you write the soundtrack. You can pave your own path to the future that's calling your name.
If you prefer to learn by jumping in and trying something out, rather than sitting in lectures for hours, our set up might be just what you're looking for. That's what being hands on is all about. We unlock the doors to awesome facilities and let you start doing what feels right. You can start creating, making, coding, scripting, sketching or composing from day one.
A university pathway is a two for one special. There are a couple of different ways it can work.
If you're about to complete (or have already completed) a TAFE Queensland diploma, you can get up a year of credit in a related bachelor degree with the University of Canberra.
That's a sweet deal for a few reasons:
If you're ready to do uni differently with a pathway to a degree, you need to:
Pro tip: when looking for the right course, you want to focus on the ones with a straight up 'Bachelor of' name. Steer clear the diploma/bachelor courses - these are for people who haven't done the diploma yet.
If you really have your ducks in a row, you can get a whole bunch of admin out of the way in one go. This is a great option for anyone who wants to get the hands-on experience of a diploma before jumping into a full-on university degree.
We have more than 550 formal articulation programs with universities all over Australia. The set up is the same — you complete a diploma with us and then articulate into the second year (in most cases) of a related degree with a higher ed provider. You end up with the same two for one special, locking in a spot in a diploma with a guaranteed seat in the degree as well.
You can apply for a dual qualification through QTAC.
In the QTAC course search, the dual qualification course titles will look like this: Diploma of Music Industry/Bachelor of Contemporary Music Practice (for example). So look out for the course with a diploma/bachelor name.
One application will cover your admin for both TAFE and uni. So you can sit back, put your feet up, and relax knowing the next few years are totally sorted. #mischiefmanaged.
If you're a keen bean, make sure you select your preferred dual qualification as one of your QTAC preferences for 2020 entry.
If you're pumped to do uni differently, apply or enquire now.
