How to get into university with a diploma

Getting into university isn’t always easy. Places at well-renowned and respected universities are usually highly sought-after, and competition is high to secure a place. If you’re fresh out of high school and haven’t obtained the necessary grades, or without relevant work experience in your chosen field, it can be especially difficult to meet the entry requirements for university admission.

In today’s competitive job market, gaining a university degree can make all the difference when looking to apply for your dream job.


Diplomas provide pathways into university

With a Diploma, you’ll be well-equipped with the foundational knowledge and skills you need for your chosen career path, giving you a better opportunity to gain entry into your chosen university.

In many cases, with a Diploma, you’ll also be able to gain credits towards your chosen course – fast-tracking the time you need to complete a university degree and allowing you to start your career and earn a full-time income sooner.


Making the transition into university

If you’re looking to make the transition into university, gaining a nationally-recognised Diploma is an excellent starting point.

As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) in Australia, TrainSmart Australia offers a range of nationally-recognised Diploma courses that are recognised by universities across Australia for entry and credit transfer. These flexible online courses cover areas including:



As well as offering nationally-recognised Diploma courses, TrainSmart Australia also partners with well-respected Australian universities – including Edith Cowan University and Griffith University – to offer its students easier pathways into university.

Through its advanced standing agreements with partner universities, TrainSmart Australia’s students are offered guaranteed entry into these universities as well as credit transfer towards their chosen degree upon completion of their Diploma.

This could mean the time you need to take to gain a degree could be significantly reduced – giving you the opportunity to kickstart your career even sooner.
