TAFE applications

How do I 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, 238kb). 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, 238kb). 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 (pdf, 238kb).

When do direct applications open and close?

Direct applications 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 Course Finder for more information or call us on 1800 FED UNI (1800 333 864) or email info@federation.edu.au.

What are the 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 Course Finder for more information.

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.  If you are required to do so, it may be beneficial to research the application process for these documents now so that you are well aware of what is required of you should you receive an offer.

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.
