The DoTS (Diploma of Tertiary Studies) is an alternative entry pathway that is equivalent to the first year of a university undergraduate (Bachelor) degree. The DoTS program is offered on-campus at Berwick, Gippsland and Peninsula and can be studied one-year full-time or two-years part-time.
What makes DoTS unique is that the course considers your motivation for studying at university - and not just your Year 12 score. So, if you don't get the ATAR result you expect or are thinking about returning to university after working or travelling, DoTS can help.
DoTS gives you the:
- opportunity to study at Monash, if you didn't get the Year 12 score you expected;
- support and guidance for successful study, making it ideal if you're thinking about returning to university after travelling or working;
- ability to study towards your chosen degree from day one; and
- option to progress to a globally-recognised degree from Monash University, opening the door for career opportunities in Australia and around the world.
Students complete six units in a stream of their choice combined with two units focused on effective university study skills, developing critical thinking skills, and exploring knowledge in higher education and professional contexts.
To date, 836 students who started in DoTS have gone on to graduate with a Monash degree. Those graduates - many of whom didn't think they would have the opportunity to study at university - are now working in roles across Australia and around the world.
