Find a course
Tertiary courses (further education) are taught at universities and training organisations (including private training organisations and TAFE Queensland campuses). Courses usually lead to a qualification which can range from a certificate to a doctoral degree.
See what the qualification levels mean and how long you will need to study.
You should consider:
- what job or career you would like
- whether the course will help
- where and how you want to study (e.g. full-time, part-time, online)
- course costs (including books and other materials)
- student support, welfare and guidance services offered
- transport, accommodation and living costs
- class sizes.
Check to see if your preferred course has any entry requirements. This can include things like:
- senior school subjects
- audition or other assessment.
Myfuture has information on courses, entry requirements and the qualification you get when you complete a course.
The Queensland Skills Gateway provides information on vocational education and training available across Queensland. The website allows you to search and browse information including courses, training providers, government funding and career pathways. The site also features a simple questionnaire to help you find out if you are eligible for government subsidised training.
You may need to consider further education pathways to help get a place in your preferred course.

Colleges and training organisations
Registered training organisations (RTOs) offer everything from short courses to higher level qualifications—mostly vocational education and training (VET).
Some specialise in one field, while others offer a wide range of nationally recognised training. Many private RTOs deliver training for apprentices and trainees.

There are over 50 TAFE campuses across Queensland. They offer certificate, diploma and advanced diploma courses, and some bachelor degrees. TAFE Queensland also delivers training for apprentices and trainees.
