University pathways

Bendigo TAFE’s range of course options and pathways can help you get into your dream career. Our focus is on giving you hands-on skills from industry experts and real work experience so you can be confident and work ready to achieve your goals. We have also partnered with leading universities in Australia to give you guaranteed pathway options to higher education.

There are multiple ways to get to University if that is your goal.  If your ATAR score is lower than expected, starting out in a TAFE qualification can help to get you there.  

Our students aren’t admitted based on ATAR scores and don’t need to have secondary school subjects as prerequisites for most of our courses. We offer a great range of study options and guaranteed pathway agreements to Bachelor degree  programs, so you can still gain the skills and confidence to chase your dreams. We also offer extensive support services for your added peace of mind when studying with us.
