Apply and enrol

Applications for Semester 2 2017 open 1 May.

Once you have decided what course you want to do, applying for a place involves a few simple steps.
If you need assistance at any point during the process, or need help finding the best course for you, call our friendly course information team on 1300 300 822 or email us at enquiry@nmtafe.wa.edu.au

Full-time study
Most applications for full-time courses are made through State Training Admissions. Some courses you can enrol in instantly. For further information on these courses, please contact us at enquiry@nmtafe.wa.edu.au

Before you start, make sure you have the correct course details and that you meet the entry requirements. You can do this by visiting our courses page and searching for the course in which you are interested.

A set of guidelines to better assist students who wish to complete a full-time course in a vocational pathway is available here.  
These guidelines are specifically useful for prospective students, parents and teachers.
Step 1 Visit TAFE Admissions to complete and submit your online application
You should first check that you meet all the entrance requirements. You'll find information about the entrance requirements on each of the course pages. You will need to search for your course using a keyword from the course title or the course code.

Step 2 Send in your relevant documentation
Once you've completed your online application you will then need to collate the following documents:
     • All academic records you have received since Year 10. If your records are from overseas, you will need to get a Statement of Equivalence from the School Curriculum and Standards Authority.
     • Any graduation certificates (including TAFE awards) that you have received. If your qualifications are from overseas you will need to provide Statements of Equivalence from the Overseas Qualifications Unit.
     • If you were not born in Australia, you must supply proof of Australian (or New Zealand) citizenship or proof of permanent Australian residency.
     • Any other results that you want taken into account.
     • Written proof (e.g. group certificates, payslips, written references) of any employment, work experience or voluntary activities.

Then, you can lodge the relevant documentation directly to State Training Admissions or at any of our Client Services counters.
Some courses require you to submit a folio of your work or attend an interview. These courses are mainly within the Creative Arts area, and you will be told whether you need to do this or not once all applications have been received and assessed after the closing date.

Step 3 Receive your Letter of Offer
You will be notified by email of the outcome of your offer. If you apply for a non-competitive course and meet the entry requirements you will receive an instant offer before this date. When you receive an offer, it will include all the details on how to accept it and when and how you need to enrol to become a North Metropolitan TAFE student.

payment options
North Metropolitan TAFE offers a range of payment options to help you with your student fees.

Pay the full amount
Payment can be made in person by cash, cheque, EFTPOS or credit card during at any of the Client Service centres. 

Pay by instalments
Students wishing to pay by instalment enter into a legally binding contract with North Metropolitan TAFE to pay their fees by the agreed dates. The fortnightly instalment payments will be collected by direct debit from a bank account. 

A minimum deposit of 20% of the full course fee is payable and students will have up to 20 weeks to pay in weekly or fortnightly instalments. (Please note payment duration may be adjusted for courses shorter than one semester in duration) We recommend you pay as much of a deposit as you can to minimise your repayment amounts.

To set up an instalment plan, students are required to bring bank account details (BSB and account number and name, and name of bank and branch) with them at the time of their enrolment.

Remote payments
If you live remotely or are unable to attend in person, but would like to set up a payment plan, please complete the Paysmart Request form here.

If you do not meet the agreed terms of payment your debt may be referred to a debt collector.

Third party payments
If you are a registered apprentice or trainee, a third party (ie employer) can pay for your fees. To do this you will need to complete an Invoice Authority Form and have it signed by the third party and/or a purchase order must be provided.

Any other student wishing to have their fees paid by a third party must present a purchase order at the time of enrolment.

Please note that not all payment methods are available for all types of courses (eg apprentices/trainees, certificates, diplomas and associate degrees). To find out if a particular payment option is available for your course, please contact our Client Services team.

Debts from a previous semester
If you have a debt from the previous semester, you will not be able to enrol for the following semester. Please contact Client Services to arrange payment .

If you would like to undertake an apprenticeship or traineeship with North Metropolitan TAFE, you need to contact the Department of Training and Workforce Development's Apprenticeship Office. The Apprenticeship Office manages the apprenticeship and traineeship system in Western Australia and helps employers, apprentices and trainees through every stage of their course.

Fee payment
In order to be considered as an enrolled student, you must pay your fees in full or enter into a fee payment arrangement. Your enrolment may be cancelled if you do not finalise your fees as soon as possible.
Your course fees are made up of the following components:
Tuition fee
The tuition fee is calculated on the basis of the course hours for each unit. These hours include a wide range of delivery and assessment activities and may not always be used for classroom teaching.
The course fee is the sum of fees for all units you are enrolled in.
Resource f​ee
Resource fees are charges for material that are essential to a course or unit, and are purchased by the college to be consumed or transformed by students during the course.
Each course page gives an indication of the resource fee on the fees tab, however you will only find out the exact amount you need to pay when you enrol.
Additional fees
There may be additional costs that you will pay during the course to cover items such as textbooks or uniforms.

How to find out what your fees are
Courses that are offered full time have fee information on their fee tab on the individual course page.
Fees may vary depending on the units you are enrolled in so an approximate amount is shown, they may also reflect the previous semester's fees if the next semester's fees have not yet been released.

Here is  a summary list of indicative fees.
