JCU Pathways Seminar

James Cook University is holding a Pathways Webinar for students who are interested in exploring the many pathway options available to get them into their dream course. If you are not on track to get the ATAR you were hoping for or haven’t undertaken the subject prerequisites of your chosen degree, this webinar will explore the different study options and support services available, application processes, course credits and much more, to give you the answers you need to take your next steps confidently.

This session will cover:

  • JCU Prep - A flexible university pathways program for students without an ATAR, missing pre-requisite subjects, or who didn’t finish high school that offers the subjects students need to build their skills and meet the entry requirements for their chosen degree;
  • Course Entry Diplomas -  one-year full-time courses combine introductory academic subjects and first-year degree subjects which enable students to build a strong foundational knowledge in their chosen field. The diploma qualification and the key subject knowledge and study skills gained can be used to gain entry into specific JCU undergraduate courses;
  • TAFE or VET Qualifications - An existing qualification from a VET or TAFE provider, such as a Certificate III, Certificate IV or an AQF Diploma, means students may be eligible for guaranteed entry into certain JCU Bachelor's degrees. Their qualification may also count as credit toward their chosen course.

Find out more about any of the above pathway programs at the free webinar.

When: Thursday 14 September, 7.00 pm

Where: Online

Cost: Free to attend
