TAFE pathway programs
If you're a TAFE student or graduate and want to take your study further, our TAFE pathway programs can get you on your way to a CSU degree. We have partnerships with TAFEs across Australia to provide programs that combine TAFE and CSU study to give you nationally recognised qualifications.
An articulated program will suit you if you have already graduated from a TAFE program related to the CSU degree you have chosen. Articulated programs are suited to graduate TAFE students, school leavers, people wanting to change careers, or people with work experience but limited formal qualifications.
If you haven't started your TAFE study, an integrated program would suit you best. Integrated programs are designed for school leavers, people wanting to change careers, or people with work experience but limited formal qualifications. Integrated programs require you to co-enrol in both a TAFE institution and CSU before you start your degree.
Recognition of credit for prior learning
If you have completed TAFE modules or study relevant to a degree you'd like to study with us, you could also be eligible for Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), or course credit, which might mean you can skip some subjects you'd otherwise need to complete.
We provide about 200 scholarships and grants for new and returning students, and more are available through private providers and government grants. There are even scholarships offered specifically for TAFE to University and pathways students.
Use our search tool to see which scholarships and grants you might be eligible for.
Transition from TAFE / VET to uni
At CSU we recognise the importance of quality preparation for university study. STUDY LINK is designed to really kick-start your studies allowing you to complete a subject over a day or online before your formal studies commence. SSS033 – Transition from TAFE / VET to University aims to provide TAFE / VET students with background and skills required for successful tertiary study.
