Bridges to Higher Education Bridges to Higher Education

Alternative Pathways Project

Bridges to Higher Education is increasing collaboration between Sydney Basin universities and vocational education and training institutions, to help people who are seeking to come to university through pathways other than directly from school with a Higher School Certificate, or equivalent.

Our founding partners include three TAFE Institutes: Western Sydney, South Western Sydney and Sydney. Together we are working to explore and expand the range of articulation arrangements between TAFE and university, and developing common courses and programs.

Individual Bridges universities are working to improve the recognition of prior learning at TAFE and sharing models of best practice across the partners. They also collaborate with foundation colleges, which complement later years of high school and early years of university.
