Students in years 10 and 11

Students who are currently in years 10 and 11 can use the information on the SATAC website to help them prepare for future tertiary study. Where possible, SATAC will provide information and updates to planned changes in the coming two years to assist you with SACE/NTCET subject choices.

TAFE SA entry requirements

The TAFE SA Course Admission Requirements (CAR) are reviewed each year but will continue to recognise SACE completion.

Undergraduate entry requirements

The basic entry requirements for undergraduate courses in 2020 and 2021 are the same as for 2019. You can use the current course search to find information about the prerequisite and assumed knowledge requirements for each course. There will no doubt be changes to the courses/programs available but students can use present courses as a guide to assist them in their SACE/NTCET Stage 2 (year 12) subject choices.

Updates for 2020 and 2021

The information below shows forecasted changes to SACE/NTCET subjects in 2020 and 2021, as well as any changes to prerequisite or assumed knowledge subjects that SATAC has been advised of.
