You should plan to submit your international student application well in advance of the acceptance close date. Applications received after the acceptance close date may be offered a deferral to the next available intake.

There are two different types of international students:

  • An onshore student is currently living in Australia with a current visa
  • An offshore student is currently living outside of Australia and does not hold a visa.

Whether you are an onshore or an offshore students effects your acceptance close dates. 

 

Semester 1 intake

COVID-19 is continuing to affect countries worldwide. As a result, the Australian Government has in place strict travel restrictions, which have played a key role in keeping COVID-19 cases in Australia as low as they are. Consequently, international students are currently not permitted to enter Australia. We believe that these travel restrictions will still be in place in the lead up to TAFE Queensland’s Semester 1, 2021, which includes all intakes between January and June 2021.

With this in mind, TAFE Queensland has come to the decision to suspend admission to all courses for Semester 1, 2021 intake for applicants who are not already in Australia.

If you are outside of Australia, we encourage you to apply for Semester 2, 2021

Note: Applicants residing within Australia can still apply for Semester 1, 2021
