We offer a range of education pathway courses that prepare you for university study. When you successfully complete the right education pathway course, you’ll have the opportunity to transition into an undergraduate degree.
Our education pathways provide you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to manage your studies, whatever the subject matter. On this page you’ll find information about the different programs and what courses they transition into.
You can also use our pathway finder to choose the right option for you. Narrow down your pathway options by study area and course, or explore your options based on your personal situation – all it takes is a few clicks.
All our undergraduate degrees are accessible through the Foundation Studies program. Foundation Studies is offered to domestic students at our Blacktown and Melbourne campuses and to international students at our Melbourne and North Sydney campuses.
A diploma program is a great introduction to the specific area you want to study. You’ll be supported throughout the course and, after successfully completing a diploma, you’ll be able to transition straight into the second year of your chosen degree.
You don’t need to have completed Year 12 to start preparing for university. If you are in Year 11 and meet certain criteria, you can complete our Uni Step-Up program. There are a number of study areas for you to choose from, including business, criminology, nursing, midwifery, paramedicine and sports and exercise science.
Offered to international students looking to study any of our health science degrees, the Tertiary Preparation Program combines discipline studies with English language and academic skills development.
