What is an associate degree?

Our associate degrees are two-year tertiary qualifications that will prepare you for a career as a paraprofessional or highly-skilled worker, or for further study in your field.

Associate degrees focus on preparing you for work with hands-on and practical learning. When you study an associate degree with us, you’ll be in a small class, which means you’ll get more support from your lecturers and tutors.

Then, when you successfully complete your associate degree, you’ll be able to apply for entry into a bachelor version of your course and you may receive academic credit.

If you are interested in applying for an associate degree use your ATAR score or predicated ATAR score on our ATAR calculator to view all the options that Swinburne can offer you.
