Did you miss out on a TAFE book & application?
TAFE: Posted 13-9-07 Deadline - No Deadline
I have some spare copies left if you missed out or missed the TAFE talk. It really is a good and inexpensive way to get qualifications from Certificate level to Advanced Diplomas and a very cost effective way of getting a uni degree by combining TAFE and Uni to end up with a lower HECS debt at the end. Move on the applications soon if you are going to apply as either your first choice or a backup if you don't get into uni. It is better to get it out of the way rather than suddenly remember it during your HSC exam period. Ocotber 26 is the deadline and you must send the application to the TAFE which offers your first preference course eg Tamworth, Newcastle, Hornsby etc. Some of you may be fast tracked in some courses because you did VET subjects at school. Check it out.

Bedford College- uni pathways: Business & Childcar
Private Colleges: Posted 13-9-07 Deadline - No Deadline
Just a quick note from Bedford College to bring you up to date with their university pathways changes: As well as having connections with several universities all over New South Wales, a formal agreement is now in place with the University of Wollongong and the University of Newcastle whereby our Child Care Diploma Graduates have automatic entry into their B.Early Childhood degree - they will receive 1 year credit. And a further pathway into Primary Teaching. We also have an agreement with the University of Notre Dame with the same credit arrangement. And there are also many other university pathways - too many to mention. As for Business Students - there are now so many pathways that it is difficult to cover them all. See the website for a copy of our internal details sheets for both Business and Childcare for your information. We firmly believe that a year at Bedford gives students a much better grounding than going straight from school to university - the transition from school to Bedford is far easier and they achieve an additional qualification (i.e. the Diploma) and they have a one-year commitment rather than 3-4 years. It is also important to realize that they don't lose any time because they get credit at uni for what they did at Bedford.
