Advanced standing: is credit granted for recognised study completed at the VET or TAFE provider. You can then enter your university course at an advanced level and complete your Degree sooner.

Direct entry: means you have a place into your pathway degree, as long as there are places in the degree available. Some of our degrees have quotas which are dependent on available placements and other resourcing. For this purpose, the places are guaranteed only where places are available, and we are unable to guarantee places for each intake. If there is a place, you'll need to successfully pass your VET qualification with the set minimum entry requirements as well.
