University Pathways

Ironwood Institute, your pathway to Higher Education

If your dream is to gain an Australian University degree, then studying at Ironwood is one of the most affordable and accessible pathways to achieve your dream. With official arrangements between Ironwood and some of the prestigious universities, our Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas, and Graduate Diplomas provide clear pathways to Bachelor and Master’s degrees at selected South Australian Universities.

University Packaged Offers

Ironwood Institute has partnered with the University of Adelaide, The University of New England, and Torrens University Australia for packaged offers.

This allows students to accept a joint packaged offer with an Australian university, and upon successful completion of an Ironwood Qualification, the student is eligible for a guaranteed entry into a nominated University Degree Program.

The benefits of a Packaged University Offer include:

  • Students will be able to apply for a single visa for the entire duration of both programs.
  • Guaranteed entry into selected university programs
  • Guaranteed credits may shorten the duration of qualifications and reduce tuition fees over the total duration of the study program
  • Graduate with a dual qualification from both Ironwood Institute and a university (for example Graduate Diploma/Master Degree)

In addition to this, course credit may also be available to mean that your Ironwood studies are recognised as being equivalent in content and level to parts of other education programs, including university degrees.

You will be better prepared for the higher education environment

Heading into an Australian university straight out of school or college from overseas can be challenging. However, if you pursue a pathway with Ironwood, you will benefit from a smoother transition into the higher education environment due to smaller class sizes, a friendly environment, and strong academic support provided by Ironwood throughout your studies. Therefore, taking the pathway with Ironwood builds the foundations for a successful shift to higher education.

Pathways don’t necessarily mean taking the ‘long’ way

Ironwood pathways will allow you to complete your bachelor’s and or master’s degree in the same time frame as you would do by directly studying the entire program with the University. We encourage you to check with higher education institutions to get information about pathway arrangements.
