Associate degrees at UniSQ
Associate degree is a great pathway for many applicants in different situations. The program duration is 2 years, so there are many benefits of taking this option rather than enrol to a bachelor degree. Examples of benefits are:
If you complete Associate Degree in Engineering, you will be qualified Engineer in 2 years, and if you decides to continue your study to a Bachelor of Engineering, you can work as an Engineer whilst you are studying. This is a great advantage to gain industry experience which could potentially lead to a future employment. This scenario applies to other areas, not just engineering.
If you decides to continue onto a Bachelor degree after completing an associate degree, you are likely to be able to transfer credits from subjects you've completed in an Associate degree program to a bachelor degree. It means that you can reduce the duration of bachelor degree.
If you don't meet a direct entry requirement to a bachelor degree, you might meet the requirements to an associate degree program as usually admissions requirements are lower than a bachelor degree.
You may be feeling overwhelmed to commit for 3 years or more bachelor degree, but 2 years makes you feel doable, and affordable
You would like to get a degree in 2 years and apply for a Graduate Work visa afterwards
Not many institutions offer associate degrees, but the University of Southern Queensland do.
