TAFE and Higher Education:
You may not know that TAFENSW also offers Degrees and Associate Degrees across many of its campuses .
This website is the one stop shop for information and enrolment in TAFENSW Higher Education Courses.
You are able to gain credit towards your TAFE studies through your HSC subjects. In other words, TAFE will count some parts of your HSC courses towards a TAFE course if the two are similar. This can mean that you won't have to study certain modules of the TAFE course because TAFE deems that you have already completed it at school.
This can often shorten your TAFE course.
