University Pathways

Articulation partners and credit linkages

Skills Generation’s partnerships with Australian Universities enable our graduates to gain guaranteed entry and credit toward a wide range of university degrees.

Our articulations and credit linkages provide a pathway to university through Certificate IV and Diploma courses. Completing one of our Diplomas may give you a full year of credit towards a degree with one of our partner universities through university pathways.

Skills Generation is proudly in partnership with Griffith University, Southern Cross University and University of the Sunshine Coast.

Benefits of articulation pathways:

  • they enable you to better plan your study and career path in advance
  • they enable entry to Higher Education by elevating your university selection rank through your Certificate IV or Diploma qualification
  • they provide greater support for people transitioning between different academic levels, cultures and technologies
  • they build academic skills and confidence progressively, over time and facilitate life-long-learning
  • they reduce the overall cost and duration of a degree
  • they allow students to use their prior vocational knowledge and skills to work their way through their degree; and
  • they reward you with multiple qualifications in the shortest possible time, which is advantageous for employment, promotion and better pay

Skills Generation has articulation agreements with our partner universities that recognise the learning completed within the Skills Generation courses/qualifications for entry into first or second year of a related partner university course with maximum credit:
