What is a pathway?
If you are not successful in obtaining a place in your most preferred degree program, there are many options you can take to increase your chances of gaining a future place. These ways of upgrading into your desired degree program are known as 'pathways'.
Griffith encourages you to consider pathways that are most suitable to you. A smart pathway will provide you with the necessary foundation to be best prepared to undertake your future studies and could even save you time off your future degree through providing academic credit.
The appropriateness of any 'pathway' option will also depend on such factors as whether you have already completed Year 12, the type of study you are most confident about (for example, tertiary study versus secondary study), your confidence in your general academic ability, the proximity of an institution offering a suitable program, financial or Centrelink implications, and more.
Detailed information on pathways is available in our 'Future Options' brochure.
This website explains some of the options available to you. However, please contact us should you require assistance in finding your path.
