Pathways to university

University pathways

At TasTAFE, we understand the benefit of planning ahead for your future. When you enrol, you may know exactly which career path you would like to follow, and which study pathway you need to take to achieve this goal.

If you have a long-term goal in mind, like using your TasTAFE qualification to gain entry into university, many Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses at TasTAFE offer formalised articulation arrangements, or provide credit or advanced standing* into University of Tasmania (UTAS) degree courses.

Working closely with the University of Tasmania, TasTAFE has a range of courses available to students that can ultimately provide graduates with two qualifications: an Advanced Diploma/Diploma from TasTAFE and a Bachelor Degree from the University of Tasmania.

These courses are in areas that include Tourism and Hospitality, Information and Communication Technology, Management, Accounting, Creative Industries, Nursing and Community Services.

Studying a qualification that articulates to university offers several benefits, including:

  • the opportunity to gain valuable skills and workplace training
  • Tuition fees that provide an affordable alternative to a full university degree
  • practical work experience and skills (a TasTAFE diploma will provide you with the workplace skills and training that employers are seeking)
  • more and better job options (if you complete both a Diploma and a Bachelor qualification, you may have an advantage in the job market).

*Advanced credit into the Bachelor programs can vary depending on the course selected. Some courses cannot guarantee that one full year of credit is offered, while other courses offer up to 1.75 years of credit.

For more details please speak with one of our student counsellors.
