About Charles Darwin University International College
As a top-three Australasian pathway provider, UP Education provides international students from all over the world pathway programmes to progress to English speaking universities.
Through its partnership with Charles Darwin University (CDU), one of Australia's most multicultural universities, it offers students bridging programmes to enable them to transition from their home country to CDU. Charles Darwin University International Pathway College is where these programmes are delivered and is based in Darwin, Australia.
The online delivery of the CDU International College pathway programmes is fully endorsed by Charles Darwin University, and gives the same academic and English skills as the in-class learning experience, enabling students to progress on to the university without having to delay their study plans. Classes equip students with knowledge and skills through discussions, investigations, assignments and digital resources.
Study options on offer include the below listed.
- Foundation studies programmes (CRICOS course code 0101533), offered by UP Education, are a direct academic pathway to first-year undergraduate degree study, or equivalent at Charles Darwin University.
- First year diploma programmes (CRICOS course codes:
Business Studies: 0100739 (NT), Information Technology: 0100740 (NT) Health: 106621A) offered by UP Education are two-semester courses that function as an alternative first year of an undergraduate degree at Charles Darwin University. These are for students who are close to meeting academic and English entry requirements but require some additional support for their first year of study. Successful completion of this programme allows for direct entry into the second year of an undergraduate degree in business, accounting or IT.
- Masters preparation programmes (CRICOS Course Code: 0100442 (NT/VIC), 0100446 (NSW)) prepare international students to meet the entry criteria for CDU masters programmes by equipping them with skills in academic writing, research, critical thinking and intercultural communication. Students then smoothly transition into an English-language masters programme in one semester.
- International students who have already completed three years of post-secondary study in their home country but find their English language level a barrier to postgraduate study in Australia can transition into a highly regarded English-language masters programme at CDU, by taking up the international masters qualifying programme (CRICOS Codes: Standard: 0100443 (NT/VIC), 0100446 (NSW), Accelerated: 0100444 (NT/VIC), 0100447 (NSW)), in one or two semesters which combines discipline-specific subjects and English language support.
Students can progress to study through these options to CDU, one of the most unique study destinations in the world, and one that is rising fast in international rankings.
