The Perth TAFE colleges of higher education are an important part of the overall package that gives Perth such high status as Australia's 'Education City'. The TAFE Colleges in Perth were originally designed to provide vocational training over a wide range of academic areas. In recent years the Perth TAFE network has adapted to include many academic areas that students can follow before entering university.
In many cases Perth TAFE courses are recognised at the same level of the university courses so students transferring to university might be able to get credit for the studies they have completed at a TAFE in Perth. This can be a major advantage for the students because on the one hand it can be cheaper than studying at university and on the other hand it can be an excellent introduction to Australian higher education with smaller class sizes and responsive and dedicated teachers.
