Many Australians think VET graduates earn lower wages than university graduates and this is not the reality graduates experience. According to the Perceptions are Not Reality report, they found that despite great outcomes and results produced by VET providers, many misconceptions still linger.
Australian Senator and Skills Minister, Michaelia Cash says, “University is for learning, VET is for earning”.
If your goal is to find a job and earn good money, then a diploma may be the right decision for you.
Not only do VET courses take a shorter amount of time to complete but skilled workers commonly earn more. In recent government surveys they found the median full-time income for a VET graduate is increasing and VET graduates have a higher initial earning capacity than bachelor graduates.
VET courses also give students the ability to earn as they learn. With flexible study options available, our students can study on their own terms and continue working. This is another benefit to studying a diploma course at our institution as you have the capability to continue earning while you learn and complete a course.
