Five Reasons To Choose A VET Pathway Into University

Did you know that a Vocational Education and Training (VET) pathway is one of the best ways of getting into University? Here are five reasons why!

Employment Opportunities

Graduates with a VET Diploma qualification and a University degree qualification are highly sought after by employers in many fields. Employers value the practical skills that VET graduates gain from their Diploma course in addition to the academic knowledge gained from a University degree course.


Personalised Training

One of the advantages of enrolling in a Durack Diploma as a pathway to pursuing a University degree is the small class sizes in our Diploma programs. This enables you to get personalised support from lecturers to help build your skills and confidence prior to moving on to University. This is particularly useful for students who have been away from school for some time, and need to refresh their study skills.

Specialised Support

Durack has a dedicated Student Services team that provide support to students such as mentoring, tutoring and other academic support.


Choosing a Diploma pathway to University could also be a more affordable option as many Diploma programs are relatively cheaper than University courses, and are available locally here in Geraldton saving you transport and relocation expenses.

Commonwealth Government Loans

If eligible, Durack Diploma students can get a VET FEE-HELP loan to pay all your tuition fees and repay it later, once you are qualified and earning an income.
