There are many different credit transfer arrangements available at TAFE Illawarra.
Credit Transfer from School to TAFE
If you have successfully completed your Higher School Certificate you may be able to get advanced standing in TAFE NSW courses. There are HSC subjects that give you advanced standing in TAFE NSW courses. Information is available from the HSC/TAFE Credit Transfer website at: https://tstwww.tafensw.edu.au/career/pathways/schooltafe.htm You may have also studied units of competency at school that are part of the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). TAFE will also recognise these units of competency.
Please note: Credit Transfer does not give automatic entry into a TAFE NSW course.
Credit transfer from TAFE to HSC
Courses or Units of Competency satisfactorily completed in TAFE or other Registered Training Organisations may provide credit in the form of units of study towards the Preliminary and/or HSC study pattern required for the HSC.
Credit transfer from ACE to TAFE
When you complete certain courses or competencies with training providers in the Adult & Community Education (ACE) sector, you could be eligible for advanced standing in many different TAFE NSW courses. ACE also provides a growing number of national competencies that are recognised by TAFE NSW.
Credit transfer within TAFE
When you enrol in a new course at TAFE NSW you can be given advanced standing for courses or competencies that you have finished previously.
