Let's get started

Follow the step-by-step guide below to complete your pre-enrolment.

Received a Vocational Education offer in a previous round?

If you have already received a vocational education offer in a previous round and completed the below steps, you will not need to complete them again.

Please contact offer@swinburne.edu.au with your student ID number and advise which course offer you would like to accept.

Gather your information

 Before you begin, there are a few things you will need: 

  • Your offer letter email
  • You’ll need 100 points of identification to verify your identity and citizenship, including at least one with photo ID.  Some example combinations might be:
    • Australian driver’s licence & Medicare card
    • Australian birth certificate & Australian driver’s licence
    • Australian passport

To begin, you’ll need to create your new log-in details, obtain a Unique Student Identifier (USI) and verify your identity:

  1. Your username will be your new Swinburne student ID (as shown on the email you received from us)
  2. Then create a password here
  3. You will need to create a Unique Student Identifier (USI), if you haven’t done so already. This is a government requirement. Please go here to create your USI.
  4. You will be required to obtain a ‘GreenID’, which is the process we use to verify your identity. With your identification documents on hand, visit the VixVerify – GreenID site to obtain your GreenID. You will be asked to provide this as part of the steps below.

We’re required by the government to ask you some further questions. This can take up to one hour to complete, and we recommend using a desktop computer or laptop.

The portal we use to obtain this information from you is our Online Applications System, and you may see steps in the system such as ‘proceed with your application’. Please note that you have already been issued a course offer, and we are not assessing this information as an ‘application’. We are simply using this system for you to complete your pre-enrolment steps.

TIP! It’s important you save your work as you go. If you need to log out (or if the system times out) you can log in and return to the point you last saved.

To begin this process:

  1. Log in to the Swinburne Applications website
  2. In the section in the top right hand side for those already registered, log in using your Student ID and new password.

1. Go to the My Applications tab.
2. Click Add New.

3. In the search box, enter NC-TAFE.

4. The search result that appears should be TAFE Pre-Enrolment - NC-TAFE.

TIP! The campus location associated with the TAFE pre-enrolment steps is ‘Hawthorn’, but this also applies to offers at Croydon and Wantirna campuses. Please proceed with the next step regardless of which campus your offer is for.

5. Click ‘Apply

6. When ‘NC-TAFE Pre-enrolment’ has been added to your application, click on ‘Proceed with Application

7. Next, you will see information related to advanced standing, click on ‘Skip this step’ and ‘Proceed with Application’. If you would like to apply for advanced standing (academic credit) after you've enrolled, you can find further information here on how to apply.

8. Follow the steps as they are shown on the screen. Again, remember to save as you go.

The steps that you will complete are as follows:

Pre-training review

This helps us to ensure you are enrolled in the course best suited to your needs, and helps to identify any support services you may benefit from to help successfully complete your studies.

Skills First

This scheme aims to make vocational education more accessible by subsidising the cost of study for eligible students. By completing these simple questions, we can help you check your eligibility.

Verify your identity - GreenID

We use VixVerify – GreenID to verify your identity. If you’ve completed this step before commencing the pre-enrolment process, you need only enter the GreenID when requested. If you are yet to complete this, simply gather your identification documents and follow the prompts to obtain your GreenID.

Unique Student Identifier

This reference number is a government requirement for all students doing a nationally recognised course. It creates a secure online record of your training and qualifications.

Language, literacy and numeracy

The government requires us to evaluate your language, literacy and numeracy levels. This helps us to support you in your course selection, and to identify any assistance you might require.

Important: If you have recently completed VCE you may not need to perform this step. Follow the prompts when asked about the study you have completed, and you will be advised about any additional requirements.

Certain courses Swinburne offers through VTAC are part of the Free TAFE for Priority Courses program. This Victorian government initiative allows students that have received an offer for one of these courses, and are eligible for government-subsidised training, to study the course free of tuition fees.

If you received an offer for one of these courses listed in the Free TAFE for Prioirity Courses Initiative, you may be eligible provided you:

  • have not accessed the initiative before OR
  • are continuing a free TAFE course you started at another eligible institution.

Eligible students can access this initiative for one free course only, so consider your training choice carefully. Please visit our website if you would like to know more about Free TAFE for Priority Courses at Swinburne. Confirmation of your eligibility will be provided once we have processed your pre-enrolment information.

TIP! If you are required to complete any component of the language, literacy and numeracy evaluation, the password you use in this section is the word swinburne. This system uses a generic password for everyone, not the personal password you created with your student ID.

9. Then click 'Submit Application'

TIP! If you log out, or the system times out, before you have finalised and submitted all of your information, the screen you will see when logging back in to the system will be ‘Personal Details’. From here, use the tab at the top left of the screen for ‘My Applications’ to return to the pre-enrolment steps. If you do not have any information saved from your previous attempt, click on ‘Add New’ and recommence the process, otherwise click on ‘Resume’ to return the place you last saved.

What happens next?

When you’ve completed the steps, you will receive an instant response to confirm your application is finalised. This means you have submitted the information required to complete your pre-enrolment steps.

We’ll then just check your submission to ensure everything is complete. This might take a few days. If we have any queries about the information you have provided, we’ll get in touch.

Once we have checked your submission, we will email you with instructions on how to enrol in your course.

Have a question?

We're here to help. Contact us on 1300 794 628 (option 2) or offer@swinburne.edu.au and our friendly staff can help you through the process.
