There are slight differences between similar programmes, especially start dates. Private institutions tend to have multiple entry dates, city based campuses, specialised and good industry linkages versus state TAFE. On other hand state TAFE have dedicated and very well resourced campuses in suburbs including recreation facilities etc..
