Study Pathways

At the post-secondary education level in Australia, there are two main streams of training – Vocational Education and Training (VET) and University. The stream you choose will depend on your career goals and the time for which you would like to study.

In this section, we explain the difference between the two streams of education, and then explain more about each one independently.
