I have completed a TAFE program
As a TAFE* (VET) graduate, you have the opportunity to further your studies at USQ while receiving recognition for your qualification. There are two ways you can use your TAFE (VET) studies to get into USQ, but if you are feeling unsure feel free to contact us and we can step you through your options.
Option 1: Credit for your TAFE studies
You can use your TAFE (VET) qualification to meet USQ’s entry requirements and put the credit you earned from your TAFE (VET) studies towards your degree. This may shorten the length of time you’ll take to complete your degree.
If you have received one of the following qualifications from TAFE* or a recognised VET institution, you meet USQ’s entry requirements:
- Diploma/Advanced Diploma - an Advanced Diploma qualifies you for entry into USQ and satisfies our English prerequisite.
- Certificate III - a Certificate III is the minimum requirement for USQ entry but in many cases a diploma or higher is required. You must also satisfy our English requirements.
Have a look at our Credit Calculator to see if any prior learning you have completed qualifies you for credits.
How to apply?
If you studied at TAFE, you are able to apply directly to USQ.

Option 2: TAFE/USQ dual award programs
Together USQ and TAFE* have developed a number of 'dual award' programs. Within a dual award program, you will begin your studies with TAFE and upon successful completion of your TAFE qualification you able to transfer into a USQ degree.
How to apply?
- You will need to apply for a TAFE/USQ ‘dual award’ program through QTAC.
