If you’ve hit a roadblock on your career path then you may be wondering what comes next. Just because you didn’t get into the course you had your sights set on it doesn’t mean you can’t achieve your goals, you may just need to look for an alternative pathway.

You could take a short course to help you meet the necessary prerequisites, enrol in bridging units, or take advantage of an alternative entry scheme.
