Many students decide to come to university after completing a TAFE/VET qualification. We reserve places in most of our degree courses for TAFE/VET graduates.
Even if you did not finish high school (Year 12), your TAFE/VET qualification may allow you to enter university.
If you’ve completed a TAFE/VET Certificate 3 or higher, you’re eligible to apply for undergraduate courses at Flinders.
Your study at TAFE/VET does not need to be related to your selected area of study at university. However, you will be ranked on the level of your TAFE/VET qualification – the higher your qualification, the more competitive you will be in obtaining admission to Flinders, and the course of your choice.
You might think you have to follow a certain path to study at university, but there is another way. TAFE SA offers dual offer courses in partnership with Flinders University.
With a dual offer you can apply for both a TAFE SA and Flinders University qualification at the same time. This means that once you complete your TAFE SA course successfully, you will have guaranteed entry – with credit – into Flinders.
Studying a dual offer course is a great way to set yourself apart from other graduates. You will benefit from both TAFE SA and Flinders’ vocational experience and insights, as well as graduating with two qualifications instead of one.
We offer a number of degrees in partnership with TAFE SA. These are designed with a Diploma or Advanced Diploma fully integrated into the Flinders degree.
