Web Desc

Australia has a unique education system that encourages students to continue their education and creates access from one level of education to the next. These educational opportunities allow people at all stages of their lives to continue to a higher level of education than they held previously. This has also created opportunities for international students in large numbers to gain access to Australian universities, vocational institutions and training providers.

Governments of other countries have been observing the Australian education system over the past two decades, and have started to implement some of the educational access mechanisms that have become known as pathways. Pathway programs are now a rapidly growing part of the global education market and are set to continue expanding in countries other than Australia.

By completing this module, you will better understand the:

  • definition and types of pathway programs
  • origins of pathways, as well as their current and future importance
  • global context of pathways
  • best practice pathways subject design and principles.
