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.

To find out more explore the tabs and courses below.

All English and Foundation Studies  courses use an expression of interest form to begin a discussion with you about your skills. Our staff will then email you a link to begin your application for the course that most suits your study goals.

Forms are also available at any time from our Customer Service counters on campus.  

To find out more about our English, Languages and Foundation Studies courses, visit the Foundation Skills, Access and English programs form or call us on 1800 001 001 for more information.

You need to apply for our aviation pilot courses with a different application form.

  • AVI50219 Diploma of Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence - Aeroplane)
  • and Diploma of AVI50319 Aviation (Commercial Pilot Licence - Helicopter) 

Applications for Semester 2, 2021 will open in April. Check back later for links to apply.

Some courses require you to start outside Semester 1 or Semester 2 starts, or require an assessment of your past study for credit or assessment of specific training area eligibility requirements for study. 

To apply, follow the instructions on the course page to the application form and upload documents to show your eligibility. Once submitted, a lecturer in the training area will contact you to discuss your personal circumstances and the needs of the course. 

We have many courses available to study online. Some online courses are fully online and self-paced, while others require on-campus practical assessments or attendance at workshops blended with online study. 

To apply, find the course on our website and look for 'All year round' and ‘online study’ in the 'Delivery location, important dates and study options' section. Take note of the units to be studied.

Then, click on the link where it says 'Get started'. You will be directed to an online form to start your expression of interest in studying the course. A staff member in the training area will contact you to offer you an information pack and work through your skill level and eligibility for the course. Our staff will help you build a study plan that suits the speed you want to study and your confidence level. This chat will progress into an orientation discussion to help you understand the requirements of the course, including any employment requirements and RPL or credit transfers.

Finally, our staff will provide details on how to enrol and when you can start study.
