Entry Pathways

There are many pathways to university. Gaining entry to university with your high school results is just one. If you don't get the ATAR you need to go straight into your chosen course, you can complete one of our free pathways programs.

Transition to Uni (six-weeks intensive) or Preparing for Success (12-weeks) will equip you with the academic and study skills you need to succeed. If you successfully complete either of these pathway programs, you are guaranteed entry to a range of our Bachelors degrees.
