Kick start your career
Vocational study provides a pathway for you to work your way from one program to another until you reach the degree you want.
Our pathways are more than just regular pre-university programs – many reduce the cost and time to complete a degree.
From January 2019, the State Government will cover the cost of 30 priority courses and 18 pre-apprenticeship courses at TAFE institutes, including universities that offer TAFE courses such as RMIT University.
Completing a certificate, diploma or associate degree equips you with the skills to succeed in your chosen industry and experience that makes employers sit up and take notice.
At RMIT you’ll have access to state-of-the-art facilities, inspiring teachers and mentors to get you job ready.
More than ever, employers need graduates who can get the job done from day one. That’s why many RMIT courses are co-designed with industry leaders to ensure you get the practical skills you’ll need to succeed.
Different levels of study at RMIT mean you can explore more than one way to get the qualification you want without changing unis.
Certificate, diploma and associate degree qualifications can be credited towards a degree.
Sophie-Grace describes the Associate Degree in Engineering Technology as a perfect transition into uni, building her study confidence and helping her to get into a prestigious bachelor honours program.
