What is a pathway?

A pathway is a streamlined way to navigate from one level of study to another with the aim of leading you into your dream job or field. This can include:

  • School to TAFE to University
  • School to TAFE
  • TAFE to University
  • University to TAFE

    Pathways have several entry and exit points that allow you to leave your options open. Benefits of a pathway approach to study allow you to:

    • Stay on track to work towards your career
    • Know what courses you need to study to achieve your goals
    • Save money and time with the credit you receive from previous study
    • Change your mind along the way and still achieve your goals
    Pathways to Deakin University
    Turn your passion into a career, and be supported to do this locally. Pathways are alternative ways that lead to your chosen qualification. You can study with any of these Grow Our Own partners and get credits from one to another if you wish to go along a pathway from a certificate to a degree.

    Finished year 12 and missed out on getting into Uni? Want to stay in the Western Riverina while you gain a degree? Want to continue working while you get qualified? No matter what your situation, let us help you find a pathway to Deakin.
