TAFE SA International has four course intakes a year in January, April, July and October.
Many courses offer multiple start dates meaning you can plan to complete your TAFE SA course or English Language course before starting your career with a TAFE SA qualification progressing to University.
Students from Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan CANNOT apply for stand alone English language courses. Students from these countries must apply for English language courses as part of a program of study that includes: a TAFE SA qualification, or a TAFE SA Packaged University Program, or the student can provide a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) from another approved provider.
