There's more than one way to get into the course you want

RMIT's recognised pathways provide opportunities for you to transfer from one RMIT course to another.

Guaranteed Pathways

Know where you're headed? Guaranteed Pathways is a new range of packaged course options that guarantee your place in your dream course at RMIT, no matter what your ATAR is.

About formal pathways

RMIT offers connected pathways between life, work and learning, supporting you to personalise education that will best meet your needs.

Recognised/formal pathways provide opportunities for you to transfer from one RMIT course to another.

Being acknowledged for previous study may reduce the duration of your course and save you money.

Previous studies may be recognised in one of two ways:

  • completed or partly completed certificate, diploma and advanced diploma qualifications can be credited towards a degree
  • partly completed degree studies may be credited to other RMIT courses.

If no formal pathways are available 

Even if there are no formal pathways into a course, there are often other ways you can gain entry.

Depending on the course, this may include completing a certificate, diploma, advanced diploma or associate degree, or undertaking recognised professional experience. To find out more, use our Pathway finder or contact us to discuss your options.
