Uni & Courses

One of most common mistakes is to spend years studying something only to find that you either can't get a job in it or you hate doing it.

This very expensive mistake happens when people rush into courses without first doing "Information Meetings" with people working in the field.

When possible also do a "Career Experiment"  before making any big decisions.

For instructions on how to set up and do Information Meetings and Career Experiments  see the Discover Your Options webpage or for a more in-depth guide get The Complete Career Change Kit.

Career-Wise Australia recommends you get college and course information and then do your information meetings BEFORE enrolling in anything. We have heard from many clients how they wasted years and tens of thousands of dollars studying something that wasn't really suitable before coming to see us. We frequently hear... "If only I'd seen you sooner!"

With good career guidance it is often possible to change careers in ways that can use your existing abilities and experience without having to do extensive retraining. For some people, a long course of study is just what they need to move forward in their careers, for others it is an expensive detour.

To search for individual courses and institutions we recommend the free government MyFuture database.

To gain further information on admission requirements another information source is your State Tertiary Admission Centre. Their role is to provide and operate a centralised tertiary application system for Universities and many TAFE courses and to publish comprehensive information for prospective applicants. 

Tasmania and Northern Territory universities received applications directly.
