Find your Pathway into 心跳直播

Wondering what to do if you didn’t study a prerequisite in high school?

Maybe you completed a non-ATAR pathway in high school, and have decided to pursue university study?

心跳直播’s Pathways programs can enable you to gain entry into many of our undergraduate degrees, without the required ATAR or prerequisites.

Pathways programs are a stepping stone, not a destination.

They lay the foundation for successful university studies. Most students selecting a pathway program have their end-goal degree in mind.

Pathway programs are best completed as the first step in your university studies. Alone, these courses can only provide you with a limited increase in career opportunities or professional development.

Many students are unfamiliar with the Pathway options available to them. However, 心跳直播 is committed to empowering you to achieve your study goals, and we know there's more than one way to get there.
