I have completed a TAFE program

As a TAFE* (VET) graduate, you have the opportunity to further your studies at USQ while receiving recognition for your qualification. There are two ways you can use your TAFE (VET) studies to get into USQ, but if you are feeling unsure feel free to contact us and we can step you through your options.

Option 1: Receive credit for your TAFE studies

You can use your TAFE (VET) qualification to meet USQ’s entry requirements and put the credit you earned from your TAFE (VET) studies towards your degree. This may shorten the length of time you’ll take to complete your degree.

Use our Credit Calculator to see if any prior learning you have completed qualifies you for credits.

Option 2: TAFE/USQ dual award programs

Together USQ and TAFE* have developed a number of 'dual award' programs. Within a dual award program, you will begin your studies with TAFE and upon successful completion of your TAFE qualification you able to transfer into a USQ degree. You will need to apply for a TAFE/USQ ‘dual award’ program through QTAC.

If you are an international student, please contact us at for more information about your TAFE options.

*USQ has a range of partnership agreements in place with Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia TAFEs and private providers. Please contact us to check if your previous studies will allow for direct entry.

Note: The number of credits you are able to be granted may differ from the information displayed below as credits are awarded at the discretion of the Faculty.
