TAFE International Western Australia regional campuses

Western Australia is Australia’s largest state and covers the entire Western third of the country. So, if you want to live and study in Western Australia, your choices are not restricted to Perth!

Studying outside of a big city can provide students with a unique opportunity to experience life in a close community while earning a qualification that will provide excellent future career options. 

TAFE Western Australia has seven regional campuses all around the state offering courses open to international students. The campuses are divided up by area:

Nathanial’s Story

Surfing before class and having the experience of a lifetime, it's all part of studying in amazing Western Australia

“My experience was exciting and I can see how much I have evolved as a person. I had an awesome time”

Nathanial wanted to become a Chef, but he also wanted to see the world, so he grabbed the best of both worlds and enrolled in the renowned Certificate IV in Commercial Cookery at TAFE Western Australia.

Train to become a retail butcher at TAFE NSW

The South Western Sydney Institute (SWSi) – part of TAFE New South Wales – has recently opened its retail butcher qualification to international students.  The Certificate III in Meat Processing (Retail Butcher) programme provides students with the skills and qualification to work as a butcher within the retail sector.

New opportunities for Chefs, Bricklayers and Tilers in Australia

Australia’s Skilled Occupation List will soon be updated to include opportunities for trained chefs, bricklayers, floor and wall tilers to apply for visas without employer sponsorship.

The change is due to a shortage of these skilled workers in the areas of hospitality and construction.  Both industries are projected to experience strong growth in the near future.

Yang Ding (Eric)

Yang Ding has completed a Diploma in Cookery, Level 5 with NZMA in Auckland

“I’m working as a kitchen hand at Prego, which is a very well-known restaurant in Ponsonby. I saw the job advertised on SEEK and NZMA Careers helped me with my CV. Apparently 180 people applied for the role – and I got it!"

"I think they liked the fact that I was studying cookery, and also I had a bit of kitchen experience behind me.”
