It was established as part of TAFE NSW in 1883 and since this beginning the organisation has been skilling the workforce of Australia, meeting the skills needs of local and international industries and communities.

  • Onshore international students program
  • Overseas delivery program
  • Study Tours

We have international students from over 40 countries studying a wide range of courses from certificate to bachelor courses. Our international students are part of the Western Sydney community, providing a rich and valuable cultural diversity dimension and contribution to the community and colleges’ atmosphere. We also have experienced International Students Coordinators, in our seven colleges, looking after the welfare and support of each WSI international student.

Our history of long term global partnerships span over 15 years. These partnerships have evolved and grown rapidly with our local international students and overseas program delivery in countries like China, Fiji, Hong Kong, Malaysia, New Zealand, and Vietnam. Our overseas delivery allows students to study in the comfort of their own country and acquire exactly the same qualifications as the one provided by TAFE WSI.
