  • After spending time enjoying the beautiful pictures of all the magnificant monuments and scenic destinations, it is time to focus on the courses and pathways towards an Australian education. Here is a generic view of the various pathways students can take that will lead them towards a university degree. For the benefit of all you polytechnic students out there, I’ve outlined the relevant route you should be undertaking. Equipped with a diploma, you will progress towards a direct articulation into an Australian degree, with a duration between 1-4 years. You will be pleased to know that your relevant diploma is eligible and recognised for credit exemptions, thus minimising the duration of the course. I shall elaborate more about this in my next slide. For students who wish to undertake a double degree (for instance, engineering and arts, you will need to spend anywhere between 3-7 years), depending on your selected degrees. For all you students out there interested in furthering your studies beyond your Bachelors/Honours Degree, you can undertake a masters or even a Phd which will take a further 4 years min to complete.
