Direct applications

Some courses are available for application direct to SM TAFE as they have unique application requirements or are able to start outside the semester calendar.

At SM TAFE, we have two types of direct application: Student Portal course applications, and applications that begin as an expression of interest for courses and are reviewed by training area staff before processing to an application.

To apply, find the course inside the tabs below and use the link listed next to your preferred course. You will either be directed to our Student Portal to register to apply, or to a quick form on our website where you can begin a discussion with a training area.

Please note: it's vital that you check the course page first and understand the requirements of application, enrolment and study before you proceed. Use the course links in each section below to access all you need to understand what is expected of you.
