Studying pathways

At Torrens University, we offer more than one way to study with us. If you don’t meet the entry requirements for direct admission into our courses, you can apply for a pathway program. For example, successful completion of a diploma may lead to entry into a bachelor degree. We also recognise learning and credit transfers from previous study. Many international students choose an English course pathway option at Torrens University Language Centre (TULC). This option is ideal for students who want to develop the English language skills and study techniques necessary for success at university.
