Get help with the 'what'

If you're not sure what to study, or which career path to pursue, talk through your interests and goals with a student advisor and gather some recommendations.

Plan an alternate path into a degree

If you're not eligible for a certain degree at first, a student advisor can help you select subjects that may qualify you for entry, and count towards that degree.

Build a custom degree

Found a degree that's almost the right fit? Talk to a student advisor about customising it with elective subjects from other study areas, or other universities.

Combine online and on-campus study

If you want to speed up your on-campus degree, ask a student advisor how to study some of your subjects online, rather than waiting for them to start on campus.

Skip straight to postgraduate study

If you've got 5+ years of work experience, why study the basics in a bachelor's degree? Skip ahead to a postgraduate degree with the help of a student advisor.
