Alternative Pathways to University

Did you not get the ATAR you needed to get into the degree you wanted?

Or have you recently changed your mind about wanting to attend university, a few years after graduating high school? Applying for university directly after high school is not the only pathway to your dream degree.

Traineeships can be a great option, as they can be a stepping-stone in transitioning into University.

There are many benefits to taking on a traineeship as an alternative pathway to University.

If you have not yet made your mind up about what career path you would like to go down, completing a traineeship is a great way to get to experience what your future career may look like.

“After graduating high school, I was caught in a crossroads between studying teaching or nursing. With limited experience in both fields, I had no idea which one I wanted to study at University.” – Harrison Sheppard, ArtsReady Alumni

Did you know what you wanted to study at University when you were in High School?

Oftentimes there is a lot of pressure put on young people to know what they want to study at university. Using your Traineeship will allow you some time to explore your passions. You just might find yourself way more equipped and motivated for that next step.

“I would recommend this traineeship to any young person as a pathway, straight out of school. I believe the best part of this opportunity is that it has helped me decide what I want to do in the future. I wish others would take opportunities like this rather than just rushing into things just because they feel pressured to do so” Meg Macumber,  Current Trainee
