As well as being an excellent provider of individual courses, the Charles Darwin University (CDU) offers students well-mapped flexible pathways between courses and areas of interest.
For example, you can start your studies at certificate or undergraduate degree level and graduate with a doctorate. You can, of course, exit your studies at any number of points in between.
Our standards are high, as they should be in a world-class university, but we also believe in removing barriers between students and their desire to gain qualifications.
If you have a will and are committed, the university will work to find a way to make your chosen study path possible.
CDU achieves this by providing a fully-integrated campus that spans all educational activities.
These are the four main flexible pathways for students to enter CDU.
CDU’s free TEP program could be your pathway into university to reaching your full potential.
TEP is for people who didn't finish year 12, haven't studied for a while, or didn't achieve an adequate Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR).
STAT has been developed by the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) to assess a range of competencies commonly considered important for success in tertiary study.
Guaranteed credit transfer arrangements are available to students commencing a bachelor degree at Charles Darwin University with completed certificate IV, diploma, advanced diploma or associate degree qualifications in the same field or discipline at Charles Darwin University.
RPL is an assessment process that allows for recognition of competencies currently held, regardless of how, when or where the learning occurred.
