Don't do the diploma of nursing with them
Constantly looking at invoices to see I've been double or triple charged for subjects that I've not needed to do. Or was meant to do at a later term. Communication and actions is extremely poor and it adds so much extra stress to the studies. I've now been accepted into undergraduate certificate for nursing with Open Universities and plan to continue that and then bridge into the degree of Nursing. Tafe is just a waste of time and energy and wouldn't recommend doing anything with them.

Poor teachers, no feedback
Awful studying with Tafe Online.
I did this to formalise my existing qualifications and help with another bit of accreditation and it was the worst thing I ever did. Stress high on something simple, deliberate nitpicking for no reason other than to be difficult and teachers that don't get back to you, offer no guidance, no structure.
Go to Monash or somewhere else instead.

This is my worst mistake ever to choose study with TAFE QLD. Poorly structured study material and teacher assistance zero. Need to send reminder for a question asked many days ago. The only positive thing is employer see someone is qualified from TAFE QLD. Its better to study from proper institute than TAFE I suggest.

Diploma of nursing
Don't waste your money. This course has the highest failure rate, a poor student teacher ratio and broken equipment. Your final assessments are 30 mins and if you fail you've done your money. Go to uni instead.

Assist in medication
Emailed Tafe a week ago asking questions about this course. Received confirmation email that they got my questions but a week later no reply!
Called Tafe 5 days ago. The phone rang out so I left a message as asked but no call back.
Obviously Tafe standards are extremely low

I chose tafe online child care course because I thought it was so flexible and then started to study. In several months I had to hold it as my mental problem was getting worse and asked to tafe to hold it for several months, but they said it was impossible to do ,so they forced me to quit the course once and I might have to pay full fee next time ,if I want to go back . This is terrible experience, and so dissapointing. I would not go back there any more.
A Receptionist and a teacher were so cold too .

Medical or on campus
Do not go here if you have a medical condition and need to put TAFE on pause or when something like the coronavirus occurs and they force you to go online when originally signed up to be on campus. Asked to put TAFE on pause until back on campus, they do not allow this and had to ask for a Refund then enrol again to find out they don’t give a full refund as they charge $100 administration fee that wasn’t my fault as I don’t cope online will now be studying elsewhere and won’t be going back to tafe.
