STUDY TYPE

Online

Studying online means you’ll get to enjoy the convenience and flexibility of learning anywhere and anytime! Log in from your home, office, or while-on-the-go and gain access to valuable content, resources and support staff. The digital age is constantly evolving which means online courses now offer a more premium and interactive learning experience – it’s never been a better time to log-on and learn!

Blended

Get the best of both worlds when you sign-up for a blended course. In a nutshell, blended learning bridges the gap between two modes of study – on-campus and online. Students have the opportunity to get on-campus and enjoy traditional classroom teaching, as well the chance to log-on online for part of the course and experience the convenience of digital learning. Often blended learning is often referred to as “mixed-mode learning” or “hybrid learning”.

On Campus

Revel in a lively, social and interactive learning experience when you choose to study on-campus. Attend tutorials, lectures and seminars and have the opportunity to have face-to-face contact with teachers and pick their brains. You’ll also get to make the most of the libraries, computer labs, social events and bustling on-campus experience. So, if you enjoy a varied and participatory study mode, then on-campus study is a great and rewarding option.

Traineeships

Learn on-the-job skills while earning your qualification when you undertake a traineeship. Traineeships take up to two years to complete and offer a structured workplace-training programme to complement your studies. They’re available to anyone who’s eligible to work, doesn’t matter if you’re fresh out of school or wanting to re-enter the workforce – there are no prerequisites. Want to know the best part? Many traineeships also include a wage, so you can earn as you learn!

QUALIFICATION LEVELS

Short Courses

Don’t bind yourself to12 months (or more) of study, upskill in a specific area in only a fraction of the time with a short course. Whether you want to build on your existing qualifications, formalise your skills gained in the workplace or feel like getting creative with a new hobby; short courses are a great way to fill the gaps in your knowledge, boost self-development and give you a competitive edge when it comes to job promotions.

Course Units

Did you know that you could study just one or multiple units or subjects without having to commit to a full degree? This is commonly known as ‘single-unit study’ and is great for boosting your professional or personal portfolio, or to get a feel for the university. Single unit study is not available from all providers or with all qualifications so be sure double check.

Certificate

Certificates are considered entry-level, post-school qualifications and generally take six months to two years to complete. Undertake a course that’ll qualify you with a Certificate I, II, III or IV - the higher the certificate, the more advanced your skills and knowledge will be. A certificate can get you qualified in fields such as trades, beauty and fitness. Alternatively, you can use your certificate as credit toward a degree or alongside a graduate degree to boost your employability.

Diploma

Excel at your career and gain the complex skills and in-depth training to succeed in your chosen field with a diploma or advanced diploma qualification. Like certificates, diplomas are generally awarded through TAFEs and private registered training organisations, and can usually take two to three years to complete. A diploma or advanced diploma is great for building your management and problem-solving skills, and offering practical techniques for the workplace.

Undergraduate

An undergraduate bachelor degree is the base university qualification and the main gateway to many professional occupations. In your three to four years of study, you’ll learn essential skills like critical thinking, research and writing that will hold you in good stead in any professional environment. You’ll major in at least one area and will have the opportunity to extend your degree with a further year of honours study, where you can do advanced study in an area of choice.

Postgraduate

Postgraduate qualifications are becomingly increasingly sought-after in the corporate world; these qualifications include postgraduate certificates and diplomas, masters degrees and doctoral degrees. A postgraduate qualification is great for specialising in a particular field, to gain professional registration, and to increase your knowledge and expertise in a chosen area. Committing to postgraduate study doesn’t mean giving up your job, social life or family time, many training institutions now offer courses by distance and online, as well as part-time.

COURSE TYPE

University

There are 43 accredited Australian universities with a combined enrolment of over one million students (Universities Australia). These universities prepare students for highly skilled jobs, fuel curious minds, and allow you to engage with people from all walks of life. Courses are available across a wide range of faculties including arts, science, medical, law, business and more - all led by qualified field experts and academics. University qualifications include a bachelors degree, masters and doctorate.

TAFE/VET

Study at TAFE (Technical and Further Education) or with a VET (Vocational Education and Training) provider and get a valuable learning experience, as well as a nationally recognised qualification. The great thing about TAFE/VET courses is they have lower entry requirements, offer more practical ‘hands-on’ learning and are government regulated - which means you’ll be getting the highest in educational standards. Graduate with a certificate or diploma and seek employment, or use your qualification as credit toward higher education programs.

Private College

Private colleges are small, independent tertiary education providers that usually focus on a specialised field such as science, law, business, medicine and art. They cater to a smaller number of students for a more tight-knit community and personalised learning experience. Many private colleges around Australia offer short courses, bachelor degrees, postgraduate degrees and VET courses.

GOVERNMENT STUDENT LOANS

The Australian government offers a loan scheme known as HEC-HELP or FEE-HELP to assist students in paying all or part of their tuition fees. HEC-HELP or FEE-HELP is available to students planning to study at a university or other HELP approved tertiary providers. To be eligible for assistance you must be an Australian citizen or permanent visa holder residing in Australia. Once graduates begin working and reach the compulsory repayment threshold they will be required to gradually repay their HELP debt.
