Education Pathways

EDUCATION PATHWAYS - Diploma-to-Degree (D2D) and Higher Education

Students can access a range of pathways into higher education and training. TAFE NSW Diploma-to-Degree (D2D) university pathway programs allows students to gain direct entry into various bachelor degree programs and in some cases postgraduate programs at most universities across Australia.

There are numerous credit transfer arrangements that exist between colleges and universities in Australia. These arrangements can result to reduction in total cost of the degree program as well as the duration.

Universities and colleges across Australia offer undergraduate and postgraduate pre-entry programs. These programs enable students to meet entry requirements into their chosen fields of study. The duration of these programs can range from 3 -12 months depending on the course requirements.


Students with overseas qualifications can also apply for credit towards their chosen area of study but conditions apply.
