Courses at Swinburne can provide an alternative entry option, or pathway, into further TAFE, undergraduate and postgraduate courses if you don’t meet the entry requirements. For example, successful completion of a Swinburne diploma or advanced diploma provides credits that can advance you to later stages of an undergraduate degree. Certificate level studies can also pathway through to higher level TAFE studies. Whatever your situation, pathways ensure you gain the maximum benefit for previous study – whether at Swinburne or another institution. For more information, please visit the Pathways website.
Applicants with prior tertiary studies that satisfy part of the academic requirements of a course may be granted 'credit' and/or entry to the course with 'advanced standing'.
