Pathways to university

Why look for an alternative pathway to degree completion?

  • Prepare for life at university in a supportive college environment
  • Start studying this August
  • Graduate in four years with an honours degree
  • Benefit from university student services and facilities from day one
  • Smooth your transition to university after two years
  • Work completed successfully at college goes towards your university degree

We know how important it is to find the right degree course for you and that sometimes that requires an alternative route. Not everyone is ready for that first day at university so soon after completing a pretty stressful exam period at school. For others, four years of study after being in full-time employment can be a daunting prospect.

University pathways offer you an alternative route to an undergraduate degree. Begin your undergraduate degree this year and spend the first two years at college transitioning directly into your chosen degree. Unlike typical bridging courses or foundation pathways, the degree pathway course offers you the same opportunity to graduate with a university degree after four years study.
