Do you have a VET or TAFE qualification?

Take the next step in your learning journey with a JCU degree. If you are a student who has an existing qualification from a VET or TAFE provider you may be eligible for guaranteed entry into a number of JCU courses. The study you have already completed may also count as credit towards a JCU degree, helping you to finish your degree sooner.

Guaranteed entry

If you are a student who has successfully completed a Certificate III, a Certificate IV or an AQF Diploma you are guaranteed entry into a number of JCU undergraduate courses.

Some courses require additional subject prerequisites are met. These prerequisites may include subjects such as English, Maths or Science. Subject prerequisites are detailed in the Handbook found on each course page. Speak to us about your desired course and its entry options.

*please contact us to discuss entry requirements for courses with prerequisite subjects.

Credit and advanced standing

If you have studied at another university, TAFE, or a private tertiary education provider in Australia or overseas, you may be able to transfer credit to your current degree which could shorten the length of your study.

Visit the credit calculator to check your eligibility. We will assess your previous qualifications during your application and enrolment process.

As a student with an existing VET or TAFE qualification applying for an Undergraduate degree at JCU for the first time you can apply through the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC) online. More information is available here.
