Australian TAFE certificate programs are programs designed for the needs of the international business and professional world, offering practical knowledge and experience for the professional business world. After a long education life, certificate and diploma programs have been created for many professions and fields, which are preferred by people who want to gain experience abroad before starting their careers, who want to add new values to their professional careers or who want to continue their lives abroad in better conditions.
TAFE programs may cover general branches such as engineering, business, social branches, or they may be in much more specialized subjects.

TAFE is not a university undergraduate or graduate program! The diploma that is received at the end of the program has international professional validity, but does not give the right to complete higher education!
To enroll in these programs, schools often require English proficiency and, in some cases, additional requirements. The score needed to start diploma programs is IELTS 5.5, and the score needed to start undergraduate programs is IELTS academic 6.0.
According to the law that came into effect on July 1, 2016, student candidates applying to Diploma programs are now required to submit their official language exam results to the embassy in their visa application. Few low scores accepted are academic test scores of 30 PTE or 4.5 IELTS. In other words, people who want to attend the diploma program training in Australia cannot have a zero or beginner level of English language. Candidates who prove their language score as 4.5 IELTS can apply for a package program in the form of “Language education + Diploma” as long as they can reach 5.5 IELTS points. In this way, the student candidate will be able to get all the training he needs in a single visa. The language training period to be taken cannot exceed 25 weeks.
