How to enrol



We are ready when you are!

Before making a decision to study your chosen course at TAFE Queensland East Coast, carefully read the information on this website including the refund policy. For more details please review the TAFE Queensland student rules.

You should also consider your ability to commit to study, including what extra support you might need to be successful, whether you can seek Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) or credit transfer to shorten your training time.

Now it is time to get started! Just follow the easy steps below.

If you do need some help or have any questions, contact the Student Service Centre or if you're an international student contact the International students' office.

Step 1: Choose your course and make sure you fully understand the program details and fees and you meet the entry requirements.

Step 2: Read the "how to apply" section in the course information to see you if can enrol directly or if you need to apply through the Queensland Tertiary Admissions Centre (QTAC).

Unique Student Identifier (USI)

From 2015, all students are required by the Federal Government to have a Unique Student Identifier (USI). Your USI will help keep your training records and results together in an online account controlled by you.

You will need to create your USI prior to enrolling in your course. If you need help, our student services team can assist prior to your enrolment. You will need ID as outlined on the USI website.

Your USI can be accessed online from your computer, tablet or smart phone and gives you access to your training records and results at your fingertips. To create your USI, visit the website.

Download the USI Information Brochure with a step by step guide.
