At TasTAFE, we understand the benefit of planning your future. You may know exactly which career path you would like to follow, and which study pathway you need to take to achieve this. Working closely with the University of Tasmania, TasTAFE has developed a range of course packages available to students that provide graduates with two qualifications: an Advanced Diploma/Diploma and a Bachelor Degree. Known as the Diploma+Degree program, students who successfully complete one of these packages will gain advanced credit into a Bachelor Degree at the University of Tasmania.
By choosing a Diploma+Degree package, you will be rewarded with a discounted package rate for your TasTAFE qualifications – the cost of completing the TasTAFE package is cheaper than enrolling in each of the included components individually.
Our Diploma+Degree Packages offer several benefits:
- Direct entry into TasTAFE courses from IELTS 5.5: You can start a mainstream course much sooner with a lower IELTS entry level than required by most universities, and gain valuable skills and workplace training at the same time.
- Affordable tuition fees: Tuition fees at TasTAFE provide students with an affordable alternative – you may enhance your job opportunities by studying a Diploma and keep your tuition expenses to a minimum.†
- Work experience and skills: A TasTAFE Diploma will provide you with the workplace skills and training that employers are seeking.
- More and better job options: Research shows that students with both a Diploma and a Bachelor qualification can have an advantage in the job market.
*Advanced credit into the Bachelor programs can vary depending on the course selected. Some courses cannot guarantee that one full year of credit is offered, while other courses offer up to 1.75 years of credit.
