International students can commence or continue their studies in their home country, online, during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, once restrictions are lifted, an international student will need to apply for a student visa to continue their course at a TAFE SA campus. TAFE SA cannot guarantee that an international student will get a student visa as that is a decision by the Department of Home Affairs. If you already have a valid student visa, and your return home requires an extension of your COE, please make sure you have arranged that first with the International Unit, before returning home.
An international student cannot study a complete qualification, online, in their home country.
