Our HSP course  is also a pathway to many of the Gold Coast Private Schools which accept international students. Students need to meet all of the school’s entry requirements for a package offer to be issued.


Pathways to Vocational Courses (VET)

Vocational courses are rapidly gaining in popularity because of the skills based training which provides students with a competitive edge when seeking job placement.

A pathway program allows direct entry from one education provider’s course to another education provider’s course with no further entry test needed.
