There are many ways you can start your education journey at VU.
'Pathway' is a term we use to refer to the different ways you can get into a course. They offer an easy transition between courses at different levels, so that you can start with a certificate and progress right through to postgraduate study.
Our pathways are designed to suit all types of students. Whether you've just finished secondary school, are looking for career advancement, want to develop new skills or change your career direction, we can offer you a solution.
We are also committed to recognising all of the learning, experience and qualifications that you have obtained to date. By applying for credit for your skills and past study, you can get your dream qualification as soon as possible.
