University degrees are internationally recognised for most professional qualifications. First-level university degrees are known as ‘undergraduate degrees’ or ‘bachelor’s degrees’. Different universities offer different courses and each university has its own way of teaching and its own specialist areas. The general entry requirements for a degree are:
- Completion of Year 12 with minimum entry levels achieved to meet course pre-requisites OR
- Completion of a pre-university Vocational Education Training pathway course or diploma, for example through TAFE or a private college OR
- Several years of relevant work experience.
