Griffith continues to accept standalone VET qualifications for current Year 12 or mature applicants
At Griffith, we have a long tradition of recognising the skills and knowledge gained through Vocational Education and Training (VET) as a highly effective pathway to university. Over many years, Griffith has seen VET pathway domestic students achieve remarkable results and we will continue to accept stand-alone Vocational Education and Training qualifications completed at high school, private providers and TAFE institutes for admission.
A completed Australian Qualification Framework (AQF) Certificate III, IV, or Diploma provides a selection rank for admission to a range of Griffith University degrees. For some degrees, your qualification may provide you with certainty as to your future study with the VET guarantee.
If you are a mature applicant with a completed diploma at TAFE, the TAFE Admission Pathway provides you with the opportunity to apply for direct admission to a range of Griffith undergraduate degrees for the next available intake. See TAFE Admission Pathway. Applicants who are completing a dual TAFE diploma/Griffith degree can also apply directly.
If you are applying as an international student, visit international applications.
VET GUARANTEED ADMISSION
The VET Guarantee gives you certainty that your qualification provides admission to a range of Griffith degrees.
To find out which degree your completed AQF Certificate III, IV or a diploma provides admission to, see guaranteed admission. These degrees are also identifiable on our Griffith Degree Finder by the VET guarantee badge.
Applicants must still meet the English Subject Prerequisite for admission as well as any other admission requirements. If you have completed one of these qualifications, you do not need to apply separately for this. Simply provide details of your qualification in your QTAC or UAC application.
