Why Choose a Pathways Course?

Develop further study and industry skills first

Completing a TAFE diploma will not only equip you with some hands-on industry skills and experience, it will also help you develop the study skills needed for university which will create a smooth and supported transition.

‘Plan B’ for school-leavers

Sometimes your pathway to university after school isn’t so straight forward, but don’t despair! The Gordon’s selection requirements are different to university. We don’t base our selection on ATAR scores and we don’t require you to have completed certain secondary school subjects as prerequisites.

Save money!

You can save thousands of dollars on university fees by achieving credit for your TAFE studies.

Work in industry while completing uni

Completing a diploma or advanced diploma at the Gordon also gives you a stand-alone qualification, meaning you can be skilled and qualified to work in your chosen field (and often earn better money than a casual job), whilst you complete a degree at university.

Boost your employment prospects

Once you’ve completed your TAFE and uni studies, you’ll have a highly marketable mix of practical and theoretical knowledge, which will give you the edge when it comes to establishing your career.
