Whether you know it or not, you’re a tech-head. Not a sleepless coder necessarily, but, because you live on Earth in the year 2020, you use tech in just about everything you do. And so do most future careers.
We’re a university of technology. Which means that while we excel at IT and engineering, we do so much more. Everything we teach has sprinkles and pinches of high-end, cutting-edge tech. And we know that leads to future career fireworks.
There’s no better way to learn the difference between aorta and ventricle than to hold up an augmented reality heart in class, and there’s no better way to start the job with the fancy AI tools than to use them all throughout your course, and that’s exactly how you’ll study if you choose to study with us.

A Wayfinder is someone who helps you… find… your way. (Stay with us.) Into the right course, at the right time, for all the right reasons. For a week in late-November, early-December, we’re holding a bunch of twenty-minute-long appointments with Swinburne Wayfinders – a teacher or an academic, and a course expert, working together – who specialise in the stuff that’s relevant to you. Swinburne Wayfinders are able to offer advice tailored to your situation, with everything from course requirements to career outcomes and What Makes Swinburne Different™.
Please note: all upcoming appointments with Swinburne Wayfinders have been snatched up, so if you were hoping to score a chat but missed out, there are a few options. You can still book a one-on-one with a Swinburne course expert, like you can any time of year. And you can still chat with us via phone or email.
Only you can answer that.

With restrictions still changing, we’re following government advice and making the health, safety and wellbeing of students and staff our top priority. As you may know, the majority of 2020 has been delivered online to comply with restrictions – which we’ve been rather good at, being a university of technology and everything – but 2021 is looking a bit different.
While we’re preparing to be back on campus next year, we aren’t exactly planning to revert to the status quo of years past. If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that flexibility is key.

Free TAFE is a Victorian Government initiative that pays your tuition fees for certain courses – including courses that lead to jobs that’ll be in demand as the economy recovers.
Many Free TAFE courses take less than – or up to – a year to complete (they’re a quick way to pivot your career). We’ll have a number of intakes in 2021, and it’s a good idea to get in and secure your place early. See what Swinburne offers.
