Higher Education Pathways

At CDU, there is a study pathway for everyone. 

As CDU is a dual-sector university, we offer both TAFE courses and Higher Education courses including undergraduate, postgraduate and research degrees. CDU also offers short courses and enabling courses to get you back into the swing of studying if it’s been a while.

CDU has Enabling Courses for students who don’t meet the standard course entry requirements or would just like a refresher about what it’s like to study at Uni today.

We offer a free Tertiary Enabling Program (TEP) and a range of pathway programs for Indigenous students. You’ll have the opportunity to develop the skills, knowledge, and confidence you’ll need to succeed at university.

Explore our course and student types, admission requirements and pathways to study so you can apply with confidence.
