Can I use my work experience to qualify for uni?

We get a lot of people asking about applying to university using work experience as their admission qualification.

In this video Tanya from our Student Centre explains what this really means. To be honest, it’s a pretty hard way to get in – you need to have heaps of experience to qualify and each application is assessed on a case-by-case basis.

A few key points from the video that you need to know if you are thinking of applying this way:

  • You need lots of experience – we’re talking 10 years plus.
  • The experience needs to be directly related to the course you are applying for.
  • People who have this level of work experience may be better suited to applying for a Postgraduate or Masters degree rather than an Undergraduate degree.

One of these options may be better for you to get into uni, have you considered these other forms of admission?
