This course is for students who want to study for all or part of the NSW Higher School Certificate in an adult learning environment.
Your study program will depend on your previous experience and the amount of time you can spend studying for the HSC. There is a broad range of general education HSC courses to choose from.
The NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) has developed the HSC curriculum and is responsible for managing completion requirements including the final examinations. NESA awards the HSC credential. HSC assessment results achieved in your TAFE study are reported by TAFE to NESA as part of the minimum completion requirements for the HSC.
Further information can be found in the 'About the HSC' section of the NESA website.
You can seek advice from TAFE NSW Course Information Officers at any campus and from TAFE NSW Counsellors.
An ATAR (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank) is not required to continue your studies in TAFE NSW. The ATAR calculated by the Universities Admissions Centre (UAC) is used to determine entry to many university courses.
