Credit transfer arrangements
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 courses. There are more than 50 HSC subjects that can give you advanced standing in more than 500 TAFE modules and national recognition arrangements for the nine VET Industry curriculum frameworks which are based on national training packages. Information is available from the HSC/TAFE Credit Transfer website http://www.det.nsw.edu.au/hsctafe
Credit transfer from TAFE to HSC
Courses satisfactorily completed in TAFE or other recognised post-secondary institutions may provide credit in the form of units of study towards the preliminary and/or HSC study pattern required for the HSC, up to a maximum of 10 units (6 preliminary and 4 HSC).
Credit transfer from ACE to TAFE
When you complete certain courses or modules with training providers in the Adult and Community Education (ACE) sector, you could be eligible for advanced standing in many different TAFE courses. ACE also provides a growing number of national modules that are recognised by TAFE.
Credit transfer with TAFE
When you enrol in a new course at TAFE you can be given advanced standing for courses that you have finished previously. You will need to present transcripts or certificates when you apply. You will need to discuss this with your head teacher.
Credit transfer from TAFE to university
TAFE has negotiated around 1,500 separate credit transfer arrangements with universities. As a result, many TAFE graduates may now gain advanced standing towards a university program. Credit transfer from TAFE to higher education varies so you should contact the university offering the course you wish to enter to get more information. Find out more at the TAFE NSW/Universities Credit Transfer and Articulation page.
Credit transfer from university to TAFE
You may gain credit for up to 100% of a TAFE course for university study completed in a similar field. Find out more at the TAFE NSW/Universities Credit Transfer and Articulation page.
Credit transfer from other studies
When you enrol in a course at TAFE you may be able to get advanced standing for courses that you have studied at private providers or other educational institutions.
