TAFE NSW has unveiled a suite of new higher education short courses available for the first time at TAFE NSW Ultimo.
The short courses, which range from Finance and Investment to Renewable Energy Engineering, allow students to gain foundational skills and knowledge without enrolling in a full degree.
TAFE NSW R/Regional General Manager Paul Williams said the COVID-19 pandemic has driven strong demand for flexible, bite-sized short courses.
“TAFE NSW is responding to the demand for higher education short courses by offering Undergraduate Certificates that can be completed as a stand-alone qualification or as a pathway into further education,” Mr Williams said.
The new higher education short courses available at TAFE NSW Ultimo include:
- Undergraduate Certificate in Finance and Investment
- Undergraduate Certificate in Property Valuation
- Undergraduate Certificate in Commercial Law and Tax
- Undergraduate Certificate in Financial Accounting Theory and audit
- Undergraduate Certificate in Business Management
- Undergraduate Certificate in Renewable Energy Engineering
Minister for Skills and Tertiary Education Geoff Lee said the short courses are designed to qualify students with knowledge and skills for further study, professional up-skilling, and moving into new job opportunities.
“These new higher education short courses are a great opportunity for people to gain in-demand skills for the jobs that keep NSW moving forward,” Mr Lee said.
TAFE NSW will also be delivering the following higher education courses online:
- Undergraduate Certificate in Adult Education
- Undergraduate Certificate in Sustainable Practice
Undergraduate Certificates are available to domestic students at a discounted course fee if completed by December 2021. Students may also be able to apply for FEE-HELP. For more information visit www.tafensw.edu.au
