From our fantastic programs to teachers, you will love living in the Hunter and Central Coast. ​In fact, Newcastle was voted ninth in Lonely Planet’s Top Ten Cities in the world! 
We can give you hundreds of reasons to study at TAFE NSW, but here are our best four:
1) Australia’s leading provider of vocational education training
We may be the leading vocational education and training provider in Australia, but we are also a friendly, personal and welcoming community. We are government owned and have operated since 1891, so you can relax knowing that TAFE NSW is affordable, professionally run and financially secure.
2) A range of recognised courses with pathways to Universities
From Certificates to Diplomas and short courses​, we provide practical relevant training, combining your study in state-of-the-art facilities with industry work placements. We offer a TAF​E NSW qualification which is highly regarded locally, nationally and internationally. Its credibility can open the door to many employment and study options, including further study at Universities throughout Australia.
3) Support
All TAFE students have access to outstanding support and care, from orientation to careers counselling. We will help you adjust, enjoy your study and feel part of the TAFE family. You can also access support services for multicultural students. We work hard to ensure our students have access to a fantastic support network of programs relevant to the workforce of today and tomorrow. This is our commitment to you; all you need to bring is the ‘can do’ attitude.
4) A new lifestyle supported by an award-winning location
From the beach to the cafés and the relaxed lifestyle, you will be excited to embark on your new journey with TAFE. Our vibrant, modern campuses in Newcastle, the Central Coast and Hunter Valley make TAFE NSW your best option to combine study with work and play. You’ll be surrounded by local Australians and students of different cultures.
