Competitive applications

Our popular courses are known as ‘competitive’. This means that more applications are received every semester than we have places for. 

Our TAFE Admissions team will rank applications received to make sure the most competitive candidates receive offers for places first. This means you will need to take time to pull together supporting materials such as your evidence of employment, volunteering or work experience, written references and previous study evidence to strengthen your application before applications close. It’s also a good idea to have a backup plan in case your course is too popular – you may choose to apply for other courses along the study pathway as this will improve your chances of being offered a place to start your study.

Competitive course list

Applications for Semester 1 2022 applications are now closed with expressions of interest being taken for any remaining places that may exist. To see if your preferred course and location is competitive, see the Semester 1 course list below.

Key dates

Don't miss out. Applying for a popular course means you need to submit your application before the round close dates to have a chance at being offered a place.

See the dates for offer rounds on our Key Dates page.
