You can apply for the majority of our courses through TAFE Admissions. If your application is successful you will receive an offer to study with us, then it's time to enrol.

How to enrol

What to do if you have not received an offer

Before you can enrol for a full-time course, you must have received an offer to the email address you applied with. 

You should follow the instructions for competitive or non-competitive courses. Find out if your course is competitive by checking our course list.

What to do if you have an offer

If you have an offer, congratulations! Your eligibility for the course has been checked and a place has been allocated to you in a course.

Attached to your offer letter and here on the website are detailed instructions on how to enrol.  Before we can complete your enrolment we need you to provide us with evidence of your eligibility to take up a commonwealth funded place with us. Once we have assessed your eligibility we will let you know when it is time to enrol. 


What to do if your offer has expired

If you do not enrol by the deadline listed on your offer correspondence, your offer will lapse and will be offered to another student on the waitlist. It is for this reason that it is important that you keep in contact with us. Call us on 1800 001 001 if you are having trouble using our enrolment or payment options.

If you do miss the deadline on your offer correspondence call us on 1800 001 001 to discuss your options. While its best to get in early to guarantee a spot in your desired course, there may still be places available right through to the first 2 weeks after the start of selected courses.

Competitive (popular) courses

If you have applied for a competitive course and your application is deemed eligible and most competitive, your offer will be released at the same time as all offers for the same course. You will need to finalise your enrolment and arrange payment by the expiry date listed on your offer letter or risk wasting your offer.

Please check our key dates page for offer release dates If you have submitted an expression of interest for remaining places, you may be made an offer straight away or within a few days of submitting your application.

Please check the course list to see if your course is competitive.

Non-competitive courses

All non-competitive courses will release offers throughout the application period to eligible students, so applying early means you will be allocated a place in a course early. Offers will continue to be released right up to term start, and when classes are full, there may be additional classes made available, subject to room availability.

Please check the course list to see if your course is non competitive.
