Greater freedom and opportunity for VE students

The school has approved new pathways that will allow VE students greater freedom and opportunity to further their studies and move into the school’s popular undergraduate bachelor degrees.

In some cases, VE students will be guaranteed entry into a bachelor degree.

The initiative also makes it easier for students to claim exemptions for their previous studies, leading to reduced study time.

Professor David Hayward, Dean of the School of Global, Urban and Social Studies, said it was an exciting initiative aimed at students wishing to further their studies and improve their career prospects.

“Students who complete the school’s diploma and advanced diploma programs in community services, justice studies, languages, translating and interpreting can now go on to a wide range of Bachelor degree options, and receive credit toward the degree,” he said.

Professor Hayward said the initiative’s introduction meant the number of available pathways between the VE and bachelor programs has grown from 15 to almost 100.

“We are creating clear pathways between all of our programs so that students can combine studies at different levels in a wide range of humanities and social science disciplines,” he said.
