Newstep Transition Arrangements
After a comprehensive review including feedback from current and past students, our University’s staff and external Higher Education experts, we will be combining Newstep and Open Foundation to form one program from 2022. Our goal here is to provide pathways to more students into the future and offer greater flexibility.
Please be assured that eligible students will still be able to complete Newstep this year. We are dedicated to ensuring you successfully complete your pathway to a university degree and will be supporting you every step along the way.
Use this webpage to track your progress and view your options to complete your Enabling Pathways program.
