Education after school is different to high school. There are hundreds of courses available in Victoria and across Australia. You can study because you want to improve your skills or gain a qualification for work. Or simply because you love learning!

There are five main ways to study:

  • Learn Local
  • TAFEs and RTOs
  • University
  • Online Courses
  • Professional Development

I have questions!

[one_half]What is the difference between TAFE and university?
TAFE aims to help you become ‘job ready’. You often learn in a practical environment. Sometimes, you can even work and learn at the same time!

Universities offer a more academic pathway – you are expected to study more theory and you do less practical work. Some people choose this pathway to become doctors, health professionals, researchers etc.

See below to compare benefits of studying at TAFE, a private college or at university.
