Tax File Number
Taminmin Careers coordinates Tax File Number (TFN) applications for Taminmin students. A tax file number is a unique nine-digit number issued to individuals and organisations to help administer tax and other Australian Government systems. The Australian Tax Office has changed the process for students applying for a Tax File Number (TFN). The new process involves students completing an online application form and then visiting an Australia Post Office outlet to have their identity verified. To apply for a TFN students need to visit this site,
After they have completed this form students will need to print their application summary and take this together with proof of identity documents to an Australia Post outlet. This must be done within 30 days of completing the online form. Information on the type of Proof of Identity documents that can be used can be found here.

Applications for undergraduate university courses in Australia are to be done via the relevant Tertiary Admissions Centre (TAC). The only exception to this is Tasmania, where you can apply directly to the University of Tasmania (UTAS) and some private institutions. Please be aware that each states' online application service is slightly different and that fees will not be the same for each state. There are instructions with each service, please read them carefully.
Territary Admissions Centres:
Quite a number of Medicine and Dentistry courses use UMAT as part of the selection process for undergraduates. Please visit the ACER website to register for the test (only if you are currently in Year 12). The website also gives examples of the test as well as a list of institutions currently using UMAT to choose applicants.UMAT@ACER

Tachnical and Further Education (TAFE)
(TAFE also known as VET)
TAFE courses are Certificates, Diplomas and Advanced Diplomas. They, generally, don't require an Australia Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) for entry or stipulate any pre-requisite subjects. TAFE courses can provide a pathway for students into University should they not meet the requirements in Year 12. For more information about TAFE opportunities see the relevant state/territory site:
