5. Pathways to university

Thinking about university but not ready to commit to the time and expense? TAFE New England courses are often shorter and more affordable than other study options, and in many cases a Certificate IV, Diploma or Advanced Diploma through TAFE New England can be used as credit toward a university degree. You can even study both at the same time through an integrated program. If your goal is to go to university but you don’t have your HSC, we offer tertiary preparation certificate courses specifically designed for entry to University.
