University Pathways

Expand Your Career Opportunities

Are you thinking of continuing your studies at university? Do you have skills, experience and knowledge that could be used for credit towards a degree?  Southpac Aerospace has established a range of formalised articulation pathways to University with a number of Australian universities. This streamlines the transfer process of your course credits towards your University degree and saves you time and money!

Southpac Aerospace courses are nationally recognised through the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). This means you will be likely eligible for direct entry into related degree programs. You may also be able to apply for credit transfer, depending on your chosen Degree and University. Contact your chosen University for more information.

We are fortunate to offer our Diploma of Aviation Management as part of articulation pathways towards a University degree by partnering with some of Australia’s top universities.   These universities give selected Diploma entries into nominated degree programs using ‘advanced standing’ or ‘credit transfers’.  University articulation credit transfers and fees are dependant on your selection of University course and the units from the Southpac Aerospace Diploma course.

We recommend that Southpac Aerospace course participants interested in University pathways should contact the University of interest to discuss advance standings or credit transfers awarded for each course.
