Study Bridging Programmes

  • Students in the Student Learning Centre
  • Students walking to class on campus
  • Work Skills students at the polytechnic Open Day

Our bridging programmes are designed to help you get going. Perhaps you're thinking about tertiary education but don’t meet the entry criteria? Or maybe you're interested in trades, but can’t decide between engineering, automotive engineering, or carpentry?

We know that moving on to tertiary education and picking a programme of study can seem daunting. Our programmes will give you the confidence, knowledge and skills to succeed in higher level study, at the same time helping you choose the pathway that's right for you.
