Pathways & credit for courses
We are one of only six universities in Australia to offer TAFE and university courses. This means that we can help you to move easily between courses at all levels, progressing from TAFE, to undergraduate (bachelor degrees) and then postgraduate degrees.
We call these connections between our courses 'pathways'. Pathways are useful because they can put your dream qualification in reach, regardless of your education background.
Many of our pathways also offer you credit for prior learning and work experiences, so that you might be able to finish your study sooner. Students with prior qualifications, on-the-job training or relevant life experiences may have existing skills formally recognised as credit towards your course.

"I chose VU as it offered great pathways for learning. As a mature-age student, I wanted to ensure I was able to manage the study load as well as life balance."
