SuniTAFE’s diploma and advanced diploma graduates interested in higher education are able to apply to one of our university partners to pursue a degree and further their careers. Various levels of credits for SuniTAFE studies are available towards a degree, depending on the university articulation pathway in place. The level of credits available towards a degree program varies across each university.

On successful completion of a Diploma course, you may enter the second year of the Bachelor program through a packaged offer arrangement.

Our University Pathways offer many advantages to International students:

  • Entry into university if you don’t meet the direct entry requirements.
  • A more rewarding educational experience due to smaller classes and more individual attention.
  • Lower costs than studying at a crowded city university campus.
  • Two qualifications (a practical vocational qualification and an academic bachelor degree) earned in the same time as studying only a bachelor degree.
