A project funded through the National Vocational Education and Training Research and Evaluation program investigated higher education programs--mostly bachelor's and associate degrees--offered by technical and further education (TAFE) institutes. This overview highlights some of the issues associated with the perceived status of TAFE higher education programs identified through this project. The status of higher education programs in TAFE was raised in almost every interview in the project. Status was identified as a key limitation for developing higher education in TAFE by interviewees in offices of higher education, by senior managers at the dual-sector universities included in this project, by TAFE senior management at all TAFE institutes in the project, and by teachers and students. [This overview is based on the research report, "Higher education in TAFE" by Leesa Wheelahan, Gavin Moodie, Stephen Billett and Ann Kelly.]
