International students are an important part of the overall TAFE student body. Services specifically for students from overseas include; course information, application procedures, accommodation options and information about what to expect from an Australian lifestyle.
See also English language and literacy support, which provides information on study motivation, exam preparation, note-taking, essay/report-writing, flexible learning assistance, time organisation, oral presentations, computer skills and referencing.
Many TAFE Institutes have special services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. Counselling and tutorial support officers assist students to plan their tuition and training and to present issues and their point of view should the need arise.
All TAFE students can learn more about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture by visiting reference libraries and enrolling in culturally-relevant courses.
