TAFE applications

Apply for a TAFE program

Current year 12 students

Most of our TAFE programs will allow you to apply directly using the TAFE Direct Application Form (pdf, 285kb). However, if the program you wish to apply for is listed in the VTAC Guide, then you will need to visit the VTAC website in order to apply.

Non-year 12 applicants

Most of our TAFE programs will allow you to apply directly using the TAFE Direct Application Form (pdf, 285kb). However, if the program you wish to apply for is listed in the VTAC Guide and you wish to apply to multiple institutions, then you will need to visit the VTAC website in order to apply. If you wish to apply to FedUni only, then you may apply using the TAFE Direct Application Form.

Pre-training review form

Complete the Pre-Training Review form (pdf, 418kb) after you have submitted your TAFE application form and bring it with you for your interview with the School. This form will assist in determining your suitability to enrol in the program that you have applied for.

Apply for an apprenticeship or traineeship

Applying for an apprenticeship or traineeeship is different to applying for most other TAFE programs. Apprentices and trainees need to be employed within their trade before they can start their apprenticeship or traineeship course. When you commence your apprenticeship or traineeship you will sign a training agreement. This will start a process which will result in you and your employer being invited to complete an application and enrolment package. You will not need to complete an application form such as the ones referred to on this page.

When do direct applications open and close?

Direct applications for TAFE programs are now being accepted for commencement in the next available term. Closing dates may vary between programs/Schools depending on the scheduled commencement date for your chosen TAFE program. Please check our Course Finder for more information.

Entry requirements

Applicants must meet any specific entry requirements stated in the VTAC Guide or within the program information in our Course Finder in order to gain entry into a TAFE program. Check to see if your chosen program requires any extra requirements in addition to your TAFE application form such as:

  • Attendance at an information session;
  • Interview;
  • Portfolio presentation;
  • Entrance test.

To search and confirm your chosen TAFE program's entry requirements, refer to our Course Finder.

Do I need a Working With Children Check or Police Check for any of the TAFE programs?

If you receive an offer into a program which includes a placement component, you may be required to submit a Working With Children Check and/or Police Check prior to commencement of your study. Check your program's entry requirements.

I have received an offer. What do I need to do now?

Should your application be successful, you will be asked to visit your campus to enrol. You must provide supporting documentation to determine eligibility into a government subsidised training place. This includes evidence to support citizenship/residency and proof of age.

To find out which documents you should bring with you to enrolment, refer to the Eligibility Criteria.

Do you qualify for the Victorian Training Guarantee? More information.

Fees for TAFE programs are payable upon enrolment. Refer to TAFE fees and charges.
