Deciding what to do after Year 12
We want to ensure you get the right advice early - so it's important to obtain information from as many sources as possible.
Here are just some of the ways to get information on courses and other study options:
- Course Information Hotline
- Open Day
- Course brochures and publications
- Career practitioners, teachers, friends and family
Course Information Hotline
Not sure which course to choose, or confused about how courses are structured?
We provide personalised advice from careers experts on our Course Information Hotline – just call 1300 275 794.
Swinburne Open Day is like an 'open house.' It's your chance to make yourself at home on campus and learn about the courses we offer.
You can attend information sessions, speak with staff and current students to source all the information you need.
Open Day will be held on Sunday 4 August 2013.
Course brochures and publications
Swinburne produces several course publications and brochures each year.
They'll give you an idea of what sets us apart from other institutions and what study option might be best for you.
The VTAC Guide contains application details and prerequisite information for all Swinburne university-level courses.
Keep in mind that many TAFE courses will not be listed in the VTAC guide as you must apply for them through direct application to Swinburne – not VTAC.
Websites are a great way for you to search for courses.
Swinburne’s online course database allows you to search all our courses in your area of interest.
Career practitioners, teachers, friends and family
Speaking to as many people as you can about your future is a great way to get a different understanding about study.
Your school career practitioner works closely with tertiary providers and has a wealth of information on what is available to you.
Other good sources of information are your parents, friends and family. They can provide you with information about their study experiences and can offer important insights into the options you might be considering.
